Donation Funds for Fabric and Supplies
- Place cash donations in the "tip jar" on sew day.
- Make a check payable to Choshen Farm (Memo: Days4Girls)
- Donate online- click the Choshen Farm link below.
Our goal is to make a quality item that lasts for 3 years. Everyone needs to be familiar with the quality control criteria for every item they work on. Items that don't meet the criteria cannot be included in a Days4Girls bag.
Continued excitement about the project
This is an ongoing project and we're looking for interested individuals to lead one of the areas we're working on. I have 2 ladies who will be doing our quality control and inspection of all items produced.
We are an Official Days for Girls Team - The Spokane WA Team, having passed our sample evaluation. We had to send multiple pictures alongside rulers and with closeups to show we met the quality control criteria of each component - bag, shields and both regular and heavy duty liners.
We support Choshen Farm and the work they do with girls in the village of Fimpulu in northern Zambia.
Days for Girls Sew Day
What if your girls missed a week of school every month? That's a thing in rural Africa. It's not uncommon for girls around the world to miss school because they don't have the products they need.
The Garland Church sewing group is partnering with Days for Girls and Choshen Farm with a goal of making 1000 sustainable feminine products kits for girls in Zambia. Women and girls of all ages are invited to come sew with us. All skill levels are welcome.
Saturday, Nov 18th from 9am-3pm in The HUB
We had a very successful first sewing day for Days 4 Girls on October 28th and want to get another day in before the holiday season. There will be several different stations to work at so not everyone needs to sew. We have lots of cutting to do with scissors and rotary cutters. Basic rotary cutting skills will be taught, if needed. We will be putting ribbons in bags, Kam Snaps on shields, cutting out PUL, Shields, bags and liners, sewing and serging, ironing and more cutting... lots to do!!
If you are a skilled machine sewer or serger, please bring your machine in good working order and threaded with medium to dark thread 100% polyester thread. We've found that using at least 3 different colors on the serger makes a more attractive appearance on the liners. Please swap out any black thread for a non-black color.
Please RSVP to help us plan for the sew day.
