Learn How to Sew in Life Management!!
School: Discovery Middle School
Students in 7th & 8th grade learn to sew on a sewing machine. 7th graders sew a star pillow and a rectangular pillow. 8th graders sew three drawstring bags with cording. We currently have 19 sewing machines that are 15 years or more old and all have been repaired 3 years ago. Of the 19 machines only 8 are working. Those 11 machines can no longer be repaired and need to be replaced. Each semester I have up to 32 students and multiple classes. This grant of 7 sewing machines would add 7 more sewing machines to our 8 working machines allowing thousands of students to get hands on experiences learning to sew for many many years to come!!
