Event description

Description

Kelly Wilson and Lonnie Vanderslice are on a mission to improve the lives of women who find themselves in difficult situations. Born out of necessity, Kelly taught herself to sew. Through that process she saw the demand for trained seamstresses, and the potential it had to change lives - just as it did hers.

Her journey has led to an approach that combines for profit and nonprofit ventures with training and job creation at the core. Today, Weave Gotcha Covers employs women who need a hand up to work in window covering production and upholstery. A nonprofit venture, The Sewing Lab, provides sewing training and connects women of all walks of life to building understanding and support. To meet space demands, Kelly and Lonnie purchased and rennovated a building in an underserved neighborhood of Kansas City. And they are looking to expand their work through the acquisition of garment companies.

Come hear Kelly's story of building an organization that makes a true difference in lives and our community.
