The Lydia Project

The Lydia Project/Sewing for Economics, is a ten-week, on-going community outreach program of Colorado Community Church designed to teach women of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures, basic sewing skills that will promote self-sufficiency and improve economic increase of their households. This community outreach specifically recruits single moms with a desire to elevate their economic status, but all women with a desire to learn are welcome. 

Lydia of Thyatira

The Lydia Project was inspired by Lydia of Thyatira in the Bible (Acts 16:13-15) who was a businesswoman who made purple cloth and sold her goods for great profit.

What They’re Saying

“The Lydia Project has giving me a sense of independence and I feel more connected to my community. It’s been a source of great joy in my life.”
