Sew a Purse, Change a Life
To kick off National Sewing Month, Baby Lock has partnered with an amazing organization called Sew Powerful whose mission is to help combat extreme poverty through sewing and tailoring. Throughout the months of September-December, Baby Lock retailers are hosting a special charity sewing event that benefits the Sew Powerful Purse Program. We are Extremely Proud to be one of the retailers supporting this event.
You’re encouraged to sign up with your friends and other fellow sewists in your community at YOUR Santa Maria Sewing Superstore.
We are hosting this event on September 22nd and 23rd. We will start at 12:30 PM. Michael and Ellen are excited about this special project so there will be an event at the Sewing Cafe'. (Date to be determined) too. Our hopes are to make over 50 purses for this great charity.
We will supply all the Sewing Machines, material and thread. You just need to bring scissors and pins. There is NO cost to you for this event. None, NADA. Zip, Zero. You can sign up for the Sunday or Monday event. Just call the store at 805-922-1784. Did I mention we are going to have food there as well.
You’ll create the purses using a free pattern and write a special note to leave inside the purse. These purses empower girls to stay in school all month, improve their academic performance and move on to secondary school. Sewists are welcome to make additional purses throughout the rest of the year and bring them into The Superstore.
Sew Powerful focuses its efforts in Lusaka Zambia where it equips community members with jobs, training tools and technical skills to make purposeful products. These products include school uniforms, reusable feminine hygiene products, food and soap.
