November 16, 2015, Flint, Michigan – If you wear – or purchase as a Christmas gift – a wool men’s vest from Stormy Kromer this winter, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re not only keeping warm, but you’re also benefiting the producers of this popular product. Women who work for St. Luke N.E.W. Life Enterprises in Flint, Michigan, -- founded by Sister Carol Weber, OP, and Sister Judy Blake, CSJ – spent time in the Upper Peninsula to learn how to sew the popular vest. This production line – along with many other products created by the workers of N.E.W. Life Enterprises – is helping struggling women from Flint’s North End to make a respectable living.
