Refugee Sewing & Repair

RRRS provides industrial sewing skills training and walkable, flexible work in a supportive community environment.

Rochester Refugee Sewing and Repair is a natural outgrowth of our mission to help our new neighbors thrive through social entrepreneurship. This adventure began as an effort to combine the skills of service providers and refugees for everyone’s benefit. The result is a welcoming community and jobs that matter.

We design and sell our own product lines, provide soft goods manufacturing services for larger companies, repair sewing machines and more – all while helping our folks gain the technical and cultural skills they need to get and keep skilled jobs right here in Rochester.


If you are interested in participating in our training program, if you’d like to volunteer or donate goods, or if you just want to say hi – just send us an email via the form on this page. Visitors are always welcome at our shop during regular business hours.
