We are currently in progress to open an Industrial Training School called The Sewing Lab. We are looking to open completely in the Fall of 2019.
The mission of The Sewing Lab is to provide industrial sewing training for individuals enabling them to qualify for living-wage jobs in the local economy, where there are approximately 1500-2000 open jobs. The Sewing Lab will also teach the students soft skills enabling them to work successfully in a job and with their co-workers.
Students use manufacturing skills to create products that support the ongoing programs of The Sewing Lab.
