George Brown graduate starts up Sewing Army to protect essential workers

George Brown College alumna Diana Coatsworth is spearheading a sewing army that has swept across Canada, providing much-needed face masks, surgical caps and hospital gowns to health-care and essential workers who need them.

Coatsworth, a graduate of George Brown’s fashion program, is a fashion designer and small business owner of Diana Coatsworth Design.

“I used the knowledge I gained from college to start my business,” she says. “In the last year, startGBC has been a great asset to help my business grow. It’s been quite awesome having that support.”
