It's Sew Great!

Remember when I wrote a few months ago about how I was asked to go and purchase fabric from the day market suitable for making some fitted sheets for the girl’s and boy’s rooms at ZOE Children’s Homes. 

Well with the sewing room in full swing now and lots of new material to play with; sewing classes are proving to be a lot of fun!

We recently had a short-term team here at ZOE from Evergreen Baptist.  Some of the wonderful women on the team were able to run sewing workshops for the ministry school students, parents, staff, children and youth.

The skills that are developing through having a sewing room and the sewing machines available to use are invaluable.

Learning to sew is a skill that even children and teenagers can be taught. Sewing can develop into a hobby or even a life-long passion.  

Learning to sew develops a sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with being able to make something on your own and one of the biggest benefits to learning to sew is the fact that it is teaching our young people here at ZOE to become more self-reliant.
