I was delighted to learn recently that the man who sends me marketing advice (via subscription) has also co-founded an organization that supports artisans and girls. Today, Sew Powerful sent out an invitation to download their free cross-shoulder purse pattern, make and share a purse with a young woman in Zambia, and maybe even get to hand-deliver it. For every purse you share, you get one entry for a chance to help distribute the purses in Zambia.
I sent Jason a message asking if we can add some felted elements to the purses, and I’ll update this post once I hear from him. I’m hoping to get our felting meetup members to help with the sewing and embellishment. Purses are fun felting projects, so I’m really hoping we get a “Yes” response. Everyone will soon be busy with holiday projects, and this one would certainly get us in the spirit for making and giving!
