Sew Powerful Charity Sew-In



Join us for a special charity sewing event that benefits the Sew Powerful Purse Program.  You'll make and donate cute purses that discretely carry reusable feminine hygiene products for girls in Zambia.

Poor young women in Zambia have no access to feminine hygiene products, and therefore stay home from school during their menstrual periods, which negatively affects their education.  The benefit of the Sew Powerful purses is that they provide purses and feminine hygiene supplies so they can attend school, regardless of the time of the month, which greatly enhances their educational achievement.

The purses are also filled with reusable feminine hygiene pads made by local seamstresses in Lusaka, Zambia.  This allows them to earn an income while doing good in their community.  A large international charity transports the purses from the U.S. to Zambia.  The purses are given to the young ladies as a gift during health class along with health information.

The Sew Powerful purse was designed as a high quality downloadable pattern that requires less than 2 yards of fabric and is easy to make.

We will provide the fabric, pattern and irons.  Please bring your machine and favorite cutting supplies to complete the project.
