WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A SEW-A-THON?
- To do ongoing test runs of the Hands for Hope production of tea towels (and other products) making these tea towels with the help of volunteers.
- To produce towels to sell and raise money to begin hiring and achieving the goals of Hands for Hope.
During the Sew-a-Thons, experts on production and process will help us continue measure all the steps and the process for making tea towels.
WHAT IS A SEW-A-THON?
This will help us know exactly the skills that are needed, and the time it takes to make the tea towels, so that when we begin hiring the women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, we are well prepared to train them. Sew-a-Thons will be a continuous way to test new products and the production process with the help of talented volunteers. Once we begin hiring, Sew-a-Thon participants may wish to become volunteer sewing tutors, team leaders, and helpers in many ways for the women of Hands for Hope. We invite you to volunteer for the next Sew-a-Thon! You don’t have to know how to sew to volunteer!
