How it Works

Community organization

Community Organization

FranciePants seeks to create a sewing center or "Pod" in every state in the US. The Pod serves as a home base for 20-50 sewing artists who receive support and mentorship from a Sewing Leader.

Free training

Free Training

The Sewing Leader provides low-cost or free sewing instruction to members of the community who are taught how to sew FranciePants. Anyone can learn how to sew FranciePants if they have a standard sewing machine.

Sewing machine

Home Manufacturing

Once certified, Sewing Artists sew FranciePants, from home, on their own schedules. Sewing Artists sew as much or as little as they like, depending on their preferences, schedules, and other responsibilities.

Financial care

Generous Compensation

Sewing artists are paid generously, per garment they sew, helping families make ends meet by creating an opportunity to earn income on a schedule that works for them.
