Sewing Supplies Needed

April 17, 2011

Denise Dias is going to Kenya this summer to teach more Mums to sew. These are mums of handicaped children, and they need a livelihood to support themselves and their children. Their society does not help them.

Denise would like to take beginning sewing supplies with her to outfit the mums with what they need to get started. 

If you can help, contact Denise at the Sedgwick County Extension office, 7001 W 21st Street, Wichita, KS, 67205 or phone 316-660-0100.
