Making Us Proud
We hoped that students who participated in our program last year would continue to sew and build skill. We have not been disappointed. Despite our high expectations for the program, even we have been amazed by the speed and skill with which some second year students are sewing. These were students who, on day two of sewing last year, still struggled to thread a needle.
