I'm working on fabrics in our sample department.
Marla worked with teens from Denver's Morey Middle School for four years. They chose their fabric from our miles of aisles, then our seamstresses taught them to pin and cut out their patterns. After sewing the clothes at school they had a fashion show. Marla's father and Wesco Fabrics founder, Harry Weiss, attended Morey as a teen which made this a very special happening.
