Ruthy’s Tailoring

Ruth at work

Ruth Tial Par, who is wheelchair-bound and came from Burma more than a year ago, wanted to convert her hobby of sewing clothes into a business opportunity. She applied for the StartZone program with the help of her Highline Community College ESL instructor.

StartZone connected Tial Par with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to help her get new sewing machines and her business, Ruthy Tailoring, has recently started accepting customers.
