Sewing for a Cause: Sewing Machines & Life Skills for CSEC

Have you ever had a person in your life that just being around them makes you want to do great things and be a better person? Jenny Gabriel is one of those people for me. She is a fellow seamster and taught me probably 90% of everything I know. I am so excited for her because she has launched a program with Freedom Place which helps commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC) get back on their feet. She is teaching the children to sew!  Jenny has been coming up with great ideas and projects for the girls, and one of her ideas is that each girl that makes it through the program will get to keep her sewing machine. I think it is a brilliant idea and a huge confidence builder to have such a useful skill. Jenny has just launched a Go Fund Me page site to help her get her program going. I know it is the holidays and money is tight, but if you would like to learn more about her fantastic program please visit her page.

In the mean time I am back to working on a project for one of my classes and hope to get some sewing done this week to report in on!
