Sewing For The S.O.U.L.

Sewing for the S.O.U.L. is an introductory sewing program that introduces the art of sewing and partners it with invaluable life skills.  We believe that sewing is not just a craft but a transformative journey that parallels personal development and leadership.  Our program is designed to compare and align the creative processes, discipline, and patience required to complete sewing projects with the essential skills needed in various facets of life.

We are committed to fostering self-expression, opportunity, unity, and leadership (S.O.U.L.) through the tradition of sewing.  Whether you aspire to utilize these newfound skills to join the growing community of artisans sewing for income, secure employment, or simply find solace and personal fulfilment, we are dedicated to nurturing a skill that will accompany you throughout your lifetime.

Through our program, we aim to enhance creativity, cultivate discipline, foster unity, nurture leadership and promote lifelong learning.  We aspire to create a vibrant community of skilled makers who not only create beautiful items but also thrive as productive, disciplined, and compassionate leaders in their own lives and communities.
