Sewing - livEden Academy
The sewing academy program was created as an opportunity for women who are re-establishing their lives after being sexually exploited or trafficked. The livEden studio offers a safe, healing environment in which women can work at their own pace with hopes of gaining the skills they need to acquire fair employment with local businesses in the sewing industry.
Sewing academy is provided at ZERO cost for women accepted into the program. Students begin by making their own rag-quilt blanket!
After each session, the student will be evaluated based upon respect, responsibility, attitude and skill. Students who pass the evaluation will be asked to enroll in the next session. Students who graduate from the program, after completing all courses will be able to interview to contract with livEden Clothing, LLC.
* Upon graduation, it is our hope to be able to provide a sewing machine to each woman so she may contract, begin her own sewing business, or simply enjoy her new skill. ** FALL 2020 ** We are seeking a new organization with whom to partner in order to provide the Sewing Academy to its participants.
