Children raised in tough economic conditions often have difficulty visualizing and pursuing the steps necessary to accomplish their goals. I have a lot of girls who are consumed by fashion, watching reality television, and obsessing over certain styles and designers. They would like to have a career in fashion, however, they are not aware of what they can do now to pursue this dream. I would like to offer a sewing and DYI (do it yourself) club. We will focus primarily on sewing but will also make soap, lip balm, and other DYI projects for the home. This summer I searched thrift stores and yard sales to find inexpensive sewing machines for my scholars. I bought three and two were donated through Donors Choose. I am now asking for materials we will need to maintain the club. My students need sewing patterns, needles and sewing tools, and soap and lip balm making materials.
