We rely on referrals and word of mouth to fill our classes. Below is a summary of the programs we offer.
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.
Artisans are paid seventy-five percent of the sales price from each item they make and sell. Money earned is considered supplemental income as a part of our training program.

In March of 2013 we moved from one great work space 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.
