What a great day! Lou Dessa Adams and Hellena Hopkins of St. Paul Austin, requested that I share how to sew personal hygiene kits for young women in Kenya, Africa. Praise the Lord!
I was delighted to have 15 women present for the event. Everyone came with a heart to help. These kits take a labor of love! There is shopping for brightly colored cottons and flannels. Plus washing, drying, ironing, cutting the fabric and using a serger or sewing machine to create shields, liners and bags.
Followed by quality checks to assure the girls will have use of the items for three years. (Days for Girls™ patterns, guidelines and checks are strictly followed.) Then more shopping for the pieces that are typically not sewn (washcloths, underwear and Ziploc™ gallon freezer bags). A goal was set, and we started cutting and sewing. Pray that the Lord will bless this group to fulfill their plans.
I am looking forward to another training event at Emmanuel, Dwight on November 11.
