So So Sewing Club - ..using our talents to bless others...

Phew! I spent my whole day working on my websites! (Yeah, my Techie part reared up this weekend, and its so much fun to fiddle with programs and codes again!....thank God for my IT degree)

Anyhoo, working on couple of my websites, I got one finished! Phew! www.sososewing.com is finally up!

So So Sewing Club is a group I set up to get people to channel their creative juices and energy into creating
garments and gift items that we would give away to sick children in hospitals and also kids in shelters.

We are also giving back to the community by teaching people who have passion for sewing how to sew at no cost to them.

So far, we have had classes and we are working on our creations now.

Support us, join us, even if you dont live in the MD/VA/DC area.
You can support us by praying for us for one, and donating fabrics (especially those that have cartoons and figures and characters children love e.g. Sponge bob square pants, Power puff girls, Dora the explorer, Superman etc).

Or if you are creative too, do something and send to us and we can give to the kids for you. Attach your name and information to your item.

You can join us on facebook
And on meetup.com

This is movement! We hope you come on board! :) Join Us! :)

The news is filled with negativity, but you rarely hear about the people who give back to their communities and that bring something positive out of there gifts and talents. Estella is no different she has a So So Sewing Group that gives back to the community. For those that love fashion and have a passion to learn can meet up with this group and learn the trade for the designer herself. this meet up was created on April 26, 2009 and has been open to those who share the passion since. So far with 79 SS sewers this meet up is growing fast and with the small cost of just $2.00 which is due the 15Th of every month is a small price to pay for all the insight you receive.
