Near Kakamega Kenya after a school distribution of nearly 50 girls.
Jon and I are back from Kenya.
It was an exciting and highly productive trip!
Nearly 600 women and girls received menstrual packets and an encouraging word of hope and empowerment through the ministry of
It's Our Mission: Period!
We are working to organize our pictures and videos and hope to have them posted for you to see them soon -- so keep checking back!
The sign says it all!. We're on the road again!! We're off to Kenya for It's Our Mission: Period! to distribute at 6 different sites!!!
This is the scheduled itinerary for Kenya . . .
Jon and I will keep you posted if there is internet available!
Recently some of the sewing group leaders met together to brainstorm a bit on the project.
Another great tool is this chalk liner. It works great for tracing the template pattern onto the fabric. The yellow tracer is kept inside the storage tube.
One topic we dis-cussed was the best tools for different aspects of the project. Many have found that tracing on darker fabrics can be best accomplished by using gel markers.
Chalk is inside this little yellow tube and then the tip is used for tracing. It lasts a very long time and it a great tool for tracing within the template.
Any of these little helpers can be found at hobby stores.
How About You? What little secrets are helping you on the project? Feel free to share them! Post them on this bulletin or on the Facebook page -- together, we'll come up with some great concepts!
The monthly sewing bee/work day at Lamont Community Church was a busy day. We had folks sewing and cutting all day. At the day's end, we had packed up nearly 3000 liners and nearly 400 shields. Whew !!!
Check out a few pictures below of the great day we shared. The Lamont group meets monthly so feel free join in any time -- check us out on the Activities Calendar on the website.
These cartons will soon be transported to Africa and will bring hope and empowerment to women ~ together, we can make a difference!
Keep up the great work, Ladies!!
