Women's Initiative for Self Employment honored Stitch Lounge owners, Hope Meng and Melissa Alvarado (both graduates of the WI program) as Entrepreneurs of the Year. Here they are giving a speech at the annual gala alongside very large projections of the cover of Sew Subversive! Congratulations Hope and Melissa!
