At FYMO, participants cultivate their aspirations of becoming professional designers, artists, and embrace therapeutic use of art making. Our aim is to introduce many forms of artistic expression by offering our various classes, such as: Arts~N~Fashion and Fashion Sewing 101.

Our workshops and fundraisers directly support local cancer patients with costs relating to their medication, living expenses, transportation, and home care. We educate and inspire our participants to be creative. Partnering with local hospitals, school districts and our community we are enabled to make a difference using our unique FYMO training methods. We offer financial aid for all of our workshops to persons in the community. In addition to our workshops, we also offer a number of FREE specialty classes to the general public.
