Increase the self-sufficiency of Rochester’s young people and adults by teaching them the skills of sewing, knitting, and needlework, and supplying the tools and materials they need at low to no cost. Through classes, camps, programs, rentals of space and equipment, and sales of fabric and sewing materials donated by the community, SewGreen@Rochester provides everything area residents need to learn to sew.
Rescue and reuse fabric, sewing machines, and all kinds of sewing, knitting, and needlework materials to extend their usefulness and keep them out of landfills. Local reuse consumes no energy for manufacturing and very little for transportation, and it keeps materials out of landfills, reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions.
