Successful Work Day

Our workday on Saturday cutting and sewing reusable menstrual pads was a great success. 23 women were present and worked from 9-4 pm. Amy Charpentier, the sewing expert from Days For Girls, gave a demo on the new die cutting machine that we have ordered. In one hour she was able to cut what would have taken us all day!
Pails containing pre-cut diapers and pad kits were packed into trucks on Monday and are on their way to Haiti via shipping containers. Once in Haiti, each of the 16 women in the sewing program will work on finishing 50 diapers and 2 pad kits that we will purchase from them in January.105 IMG_1678 (2)
