Our Program At Interwoven offers a comprehensive educational sewing program that equips participants with the necessary skills to excel in the textile industry. Our curriculum covers various topics, including basic and advanced sewing techniques, pattern making, fabric selection, and garment construction. We also incorporate lessons on business skills, such as marketing, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy, to prepare our participants for sustainable careers or even starting their own businesses.

Why We Do It Refugee and immigrant women often face significant barriers to employment, including language barriers, lack of local work experience, and limited access to educational resources. At Interwoven, we recognize the potential and resilience of these women and strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment where they can thrive. By providing them with the tools and knowledge to succeed in the textile industry, we aim to foster economic empowerment and community integration.

Our Impact Since our inception, Interwoven has helped numerous women gain the skills and confidence needed to secure employment in the textile industry. The impact of our program extends beyond individual success stories, contributing to the economic vitality of our community and promoting cultural diversity and inclusion.

Get Involved Interwoven thrives on the support of volunteers, donors, and partners. Whether you are an experienced seamstress, a business professional, or someone who simply wants to make a difference, there are many ways to get involved with our organization. From teaching sewing classes to providing mentorship and financial support, your contributions can help us continue to empower refugee and immigrant women.
