Sustainable Fashion for Sustainable Jobs

Building Futures Through Education

Esperanza Threads…………………….                          is still Stitching the Future!…………….

We began our current training classes October 4th, 2021.

Due to the generosity of all the donors during our annual fundraiser we will be able to provide a "Dream AH700" sewing machine to each of the graduating participants.

 The virtual fundraising campaign is over.

The horses are back in their stalls and the results are in for the 2021 Esperanza Threads fundraiser… We would like to thank everyone who participated with their generous donations.

Click on the relaxing filly below for the results.


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 began a new industrial sewing training class October 4th.

This is an eight week class running Monday to Thursday from 9:00am to 2:30pm.

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