Community Project....

Back In February I did a post on the Sewing Studio

The second year I taught I thought it would be good for students to work on a Community Project to give away. The first project I had students do, was for a group in town that needed Baby Quilts. 
Each class worked on a quilt. . .
Here are a couple of the quilts students made. 
Six quilts were made in all.
One year we made aprons for the Seniors Home Cooking Class.

Another year bags for Mexico to be filled with gifts.

The last project we started was 4 years ago. The students started working on a Rag Quilt to be sent to Mexico. I thought this project would never be done...it just seemed students were too busy to work on the quilt...one year it never got worked on....but finally... its complete. 
It ended up being 2 quilts instead of one...as it became to large to handle! 
The quilts are now washed are ready to go to Mexico this coming January! 
Next sewing session...we can start on a new project!!

I am joining Secret Santa!

  1. What a wonderful why for the children to not only learn how to sew and be creative, they also learn to be compassionate.

  8. What a great project for children to be part of. The quilts are looking great. I wonder if any of those girls will become quilt enthusiasts when they are older.
