I'm pleased to report that we had a successful 1st Sewing Party at Shandon Baptist Church Thursday, July 30! We had 15 sewing machines running and more than 30 people participating--including grandmas, moms, college students, youth, and some well-behaved little ones! This doesn't even count the 1/2-dozen or more ladies who have been pre-cutting fabric for our event.
We made more than 100 freedom pads for the ladies of South Sudan! With all the ones completed at home and finishing up the ones started at the Sewing Party, we now have nearly 200 completed! Here are the pics from the event:
