Mission

Rightfully Sewn will provide seamstress training for individuals so they can thrive in a specialized workforce that will reestablish Kansas City as an epicenter of garment manufacturing, while at the same time, propel Kansas City fashion designers to market so they can supply the burgeoning demand for affordable, high-quality, American-produced garments.

Description

Rightfully Sewn is an innovative nonprofit that developed its mission to meet the need of individuals for stable, well-paying jobs to secure financial independence, and the need of local fashion industry businesses for skilled seamstresses to expand their operations. We address important economic concerns on both an individual and community-wide level. Through skills training that provides a path to employment and various strategies to foster a well-connected, efficient fashion design and manufacturing community, Rightfully Sewn is laying a path to a contemporary version of Kansas City's 20th-century golden era of garment design and manufacturing.
