Your are invited to join the Women’s Fellowship Group for the MoonCatcher Sewing Bee on Tuesday, March 8 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.
Girls in developing countries often drop out of school when they reach puberty because they have no access to feminine hygiene products. Educating girls is the most effective means of improving their lives and fostering economic development in developing countries. The MoonCatcher project is a grassroots volunteer project that makes it possible for girls to stay in school. It is designed to provide reusable feminine pads for use during their monthly cycles, when such products are not readily available. Getting an education helps girls marry later, have fewer children at a later age, and thereby gain financial independence which helps themselves and their families.
Supplies to bring: scissors, straight pins, ironing boards, irons, sewing machines, sewing needles.
Optional: if anyone has “cotton-like” fabric they’d like to donate, the group is happy to receive this, however they do bring all the fabric parts needed.
You don’t need to be able to sew. There are jobs for everybody. The most important ingredient is your enthusiasm!
