The Southeastern Jackson County Neighborhood Group will be hosting
a community service sew-in on Saturday, September 24, 2022 beginning
at 9:00 am.. The location is Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 350 SW
150 Highway, Lee's Summit MO. Our focus will be on sewing purses for
SewPowerful.org. Anyone may attend, we will need those who can cut
patterns, assemble kits, and of course, sew the purses together.
Sew Powerful, a non-profit organization, asks seamstresses from around
the world to make and donate a purse for a schoolgirl in Zambia. The
purse is filled with re-usable feminine hygiene supplies made by those
employed in Zambia by Sew Powerful. The girl receives the purse and
supplies in her health training class to enable her to attend school all
month and improve her academic performance. We will sew cross-body
purses from the free pattern provided by Sew Powerful and contribute to
their goal of 24,000 purses
If you need additional information about the sew-in, please contact
Debbie Cole (816) 520-7437.
