Please visit our website: Sew We Work 

Sew We Work serves disadvantaged persons, those people who would not ordinarily learn how to sew in order to earn an income. Currently Sew We Work partners with Ramsey County Family Transitional Center, Project for Pride in Living, and Love Grows Here at First Lutheran Church. Currently SWW teaches sewing in six to eight week segments providing sewing machines and supplies to the students. When students gain proficient understand of sewing and demonstrate a passion for sewing, students are given the sewing machine, supplies, and fabrics to start them on Sew We Work's goal is to open a space providing opportunity for people to learn to sew using different types of sewing machines; using the space to sew a product for sale and well as provide a rental space for other sewing instructors to teach (this would be an income stream for Sew We Work). In addition, having a space to work provides regular hours, dedicated sewing teacher volunteers and space to sew. Everyone who teaches with SWW is a volunteer, no one is paid; all donations whether in-kind or monetary goes directly to supplies for students to use and keep.
