Give Back With CityCraft

SEEKING VOLUNTEERS! CityCraft is very proud of our partnership with Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas, a nonprofit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through research-based programs and advocacy that empowers girls to reach their full potential and to understand, value, and assert their rights. On January 16, (that's next Monday!)  (GIRLS INC will be closed next Monday for the holiday - stay tuned for an updated date.) be hosting the third in a series of sewing classes for a group of girls in the Dallas Girls Inc. program at the Love Field campus which is located about five minutes away from CityCraft. We will bring along all of our machines and supplies to the campus for a machine introduction class and completion of a simple project that the girls can take home.

We are looking for 8-10 volunteers to assist the girls with machine setup and project completion. This week's project is to be determined, but these girls have taken the class before and we will start with a brief machine setup refresher. Sewing machine skills required of all volunteers as well as a general idea of how to set up a machine that uses top-loading bobbins. (And a passion for sewing, of course!)

This is a wonderful opportunity to share your sewing skills with a new generation of sewers that might not otherwise have the opportunity to take classes or learn on their own sewing machine. As you know, the art and skill of sewing has so many more rewards that just the practical knowledge of how to stitch a seam. Personally, there is nothing more rewarding for me than sharing the fulfillment that I get from the creative process of sewing with others for the first time.

Please join us next Monday afternoon, January 16. (GIRLS INC closed for holiday next monday, stay tuned for new date.) We will be meeting at Girls Inc. at 4:30 pm. The class will last approximately 2 hours.

CityCraft is providing all the materials, supplies, and machines necessary. You do not need to bring anything with you.

If you can't make it next week, please know that this is an ongoing program that will occur monthly. We are so excited to be able to do this!!
