Sew Giving May: Teaching Moms to Sew at Hope House of Colorado

The Sew Giving project for May was teaching young moms how to sew. I was asked by a Regis University student if I would collaborate with her on a school assignment for her intercultural communications class. She was to reach out to a specific demographic of her choice and plan a community service project.

She selected teen moms and wanted them to learn a life skill. I was contacted and we made arrangements to teach teen moms how to sew. I took my sewing machines, notions, and tools to the Hope House of Colorado and taught my Intro to Sewing class to very enthusiastic teen moms. We had fun learning how to operate the sewing machine, how to sew seams, and how to make a drawstring bag. The moms did a super job and were excited about the possibilities of what they could sew next!
