In August, we celebrated the colors of Summer by creating fabulous fabric flowers!

We showed the women at our partner agencies how to tear, twist, pin and glue scrap fabric to make cheerful floral pins, head bands, or belts.

When we asked the participants what they took away from the workshop, a woman from Lydia’s House said “How to use fabric in a new way.” A woman from St. Patrick’s Center said she learned “patience, peace, and happiness.
