Volunteering as a Sewing Instructor
For the past few months I have been volunteering at a local Boys and Girls Club - teaching sewing, and I am truly enjoying providing instruction to them, and they are so interested in sewing and making useful items for themselves and as gifts.
Here are a couple of students starting on their individual quilts. They were very excited to learn how to make a quilt. We mostly work from donated fabrics, supplies, and equipment - because our resources are limited. If you have any items that these young people can utilize to hone their skills in sewing, please contact me. They are in need of fabrics, patterns, thread, sewing machines, and notions. books, and DVDs. Basically - any and everything that relates to sewing.
Here's the finished quilt. Notice her beaming with pride!!!
More cutting...all the fun of making a quilt, right?
Here's Danyelle cutting out her fabric.
Here's a layout of Danyelle's quilt...let the sewing begin!!!
This young lady started her quilt, and make a nice arrangement of the blocks.
She was't able to finish her quilt, I believe her family moved,
and it wasn't convenient for them to have her continue the class.
