About The Sewing Labs
1305 E 27th Street, Kansas City, MO 64108, US
Our mission is: To inspire hope in vulnerable populations of individuals marginalized by generational poverty, substance abuse, immigration and/or incarceration, through jobs training, creative sewing arts, and networking. We interrupt the cycles of generational poverty and substance abuse through job skills training, community formation, entrepreneurship, and perpetuation of the sewing arts.
The Sewing Labs is a community learning center that teaches the lost art of sewing towards job creation. We are partnered with employers all over Kansas City that are seeking trained sewists. We also are launching a Sewing Salon to encourage entrepreneurs who use sewing as a means to thrive.
