High School Sewing
The RAPPP/PRIDE program in New Bedford offers high school males the opportunity to learn to sew. We were happy to share sewing machines with these boys and even happier to learn that they’re really enjoying sewing! They’ve done some cool projects–quilting, making tote bags for homeless folks in their neighborhood, even sewing a quilt with classic seafaring designs to commemorate their community.
Some of the boys are now even considering a career in fashion design and merchandising!
Every application we receive is unique and we are always delighted to see how so many different groups communicate with and through sewing.
