2022 students

These four students are wearing blouses that they made in class.

We are grateful for our funders who have allowed us to provide these low income students a stipend that will permit them to stay in class while they learn the valuable skills that will help them get a job after they complete their training.

Esperanza Threads is still Stitching The Future.

Our last class for 2022 has ended & the first class for 2023 is full and will begins on January 9th.

Candidates are low income and desiring to be trained in preparation for application to an industrial sewing manufacturer.
