It all happens in West Asheville, NC. In the very weird summer of 2020, Jess took apparel sewing back up with a vengeance. Not since her college theatre days had she sewn so many clothes; quarantine meant months spent getting to know the sewing machine again, churning out beginner leggings, dresses, hoodies, shorts, skirts, and a few epic fails.
Outside, distancing with friends in nature, she noticed how scarce a certain popular Polartec Powergrid hoodie style had become, and how simple the pattern really was. Cut to 2022, and they have a little family of three: Jess, Chris, and Melissa are hiding behind that orange door in the alleyway of 726 Haywood Rd., busy as bees, making it happen.

I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
