Class 1: An eight week course that teaches basic sewing skills, sewing related English vocabulary, and the basics of retail selling
Class 2: An intermediate class that continues with more advanced sewing techniques and more ESL
Class 3: A third level where students have met our quality standards and are encouraged to make artisan items to sell


Our knitting group meets on Tuesdays, 9:30am-12:30pm. We welcome all levels and work on projects that include both knitting and crocheting techniques.

As of March of 2013 we moved from one great workspace to another thanks to our supportive partners. A heartfelt thank you from the students and volunteers of Artisans For Hope to Steve West at Centra Consulting and Tom and Barbara Mannschreck at Thomas Development Co. You have given us space; sponsored our facility and utilities cost; and have been terrific neighbors.
