Sarah Center empowers our neighbors to craft beautiful futures for themselves and their families by learning sewing, quilting and jewelry-making skills. In the Franciscan spirit of serving the poor and less fortunate, Sarah Center programs promote stability and community through the training sessions, so students build confidence as they hone technical skills.
Our newest program, #Stitched#, teaches basic sewing skills for those who wish to pursue a career in the textile industry – either to make and sell crafts as an entrepreneur or to pursue a sewing job with a textile manufacturer, dry cleaner, tailor, or similar companies. #Stitched# is a five-week course with classes Monday through Thursday.

The jewelry-making program also lasts five weeks, with classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Students learn basic skills to make beautiful jewelry that they can give as gifts or sell as a way to make additional income. All materials are included.
Class size for all programs is limited. If you would like to participate in an upcoming session, click on the link below to sign up for classes and the Sarah Center staff will work with you to find a session that fits your schedule.
