The NRC Women’s Fellowship Group will host its fourth annual MoonCatcher Sewing Bee in Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, February 12 from 6:30 – about 8:30 pm.
The MoonCatcher Project, a Schenectady-based organization founded in 2011, provides free reusable, washable menstrual pads for girls in the poorest communities worldwide. These pads provide a way for girls to stay in school while menstruating, giving them a greater chance of completing their education. For more information, visit the MoonCatcher Project website at: www.mooncatcher.org
Even if you can’t sew or don’t consider yourself particularly handy, you can participate in and enjoy a MoonBee. There are useful jobs for everyone, skilled or unskilled. All materials and equipment are provided. However, if you have a sewing machine that you would like to bring, more are always helpful. Good scissors come in handy and cotton fabrics are always welcome as well.
Please join us for this important way to help these young women have a chance at better lives.
