The Sew Kewl Sewing School's mission is to "teach the craft of sewing and the art of giving". It is designed to teach students the basics of sewing by completing projects. Some of these projects will be for the students to keep, some will be worked on collectively to donate to others both locally and internationally.

Sewing is a great skill but also a very cool art. We know that you're going to love the Sew Kewl Sewing School! (arts@freedomkw.com)
