The women from Waseca United Methodist Church won the honors of holding the first Cutting Party. 24 women spent 6 hours cutting and partially sewing kits. The bright colors of the fabrics helped to brighten a rainy day. We all admired one participants 1940 sewing machine, which she refers to as her “portable model”.
Eight more cutting parties have been booked and a large supply of kits will be sent to Haiti in mid June. We recieved word from Haiti this week that the 30 diapers we distributed to a re-feeding program for infants were very well received and the participants are interested in starting their own sewing program using our kit model.
