Building Children One Stitcth at a Time

Sewing actually reinforces things the students are learning in school, like reading, math and art—subjects they are already familiar with. You can see when the light bulb goes off and they make the connection. But most importantly, I think the kids just enjoy the feeling of making something from nothing.
