A brief history of our sewing class projects: In the Spring of 2013, a volunteer parent, Cindy Grossholz, began the first sewing classes at SMC. During 2013 and 2014, the participants made 35 pillowcase and t-shirt dresses that were sent to Belize. During 2015, the participants made a lap-sized quilt to be auctioned at a SMC fundraising event. In April 2016, the participants sewed the 200th pillow case for “Ryan’s Case for Smiles” at Kosair Children's Hospital. Our mission to serve others through the skills of sewing continues to flourish and spread throughout the community and world!
Participants enjoy learning how to use the sewing machines skillfully to produce useful and beautiful items for clothing and home use.
The participants were so excited-everyone enjoyed learning to sew!
Participants are reaping the joys of giving by making t-shirt dresses for an organization called So Blessed Kentuckiana. These dresses are distributed to orphans in Uganda and other African cities.
As the classes progressed, the girls made, and then wore, beautiful skirts to St. Mary’s Open House ceremony in June 2014.
They have all mastered the art of sewing pillow cases!
These pillow cases are given to children going through treatment for cancer at Kosair Children's Hospital.
