Our Sewing Saturdays groups are going great and we are so grateful for the love and support the community has shown us! Together, we’ve made 62 garments and are very close to having enough of one size to outfit an entire classroom! Each skirt, shirt and vest is unique and carries a tag that says “handmade with love by” with the maker’s name so that every child who receives one, will know their ceremonial garment was made by hand, just for them.
Miigwech – Yaw^ko -Wāēwāēnen – Wa’įniginąp šąną (THANK YOU) to Theresa Seidel and Candice Truesdell Nokes for their donations! And to everyone who is helping us sew or has donated supplies! It all matters – it all counts – just look at these fabulous images!
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE SEWING ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2019 DUE TO WINTER CEREMONIES IN BAD RIVER.
ABOUT SEWING SATURDAYS: Indian Community School has committed to sewing ribbon skirts, shirts and vests for our students to wear during our ceremonies, pow wows and cultural celebrations. That means 255 ribbon skirts for our girls and 175 ribbon shirts or vests for our boys, ages K4 through 8th Grade! If you would like to donate your time, fabric or finished garments to this effort, please contact Siobhan Marks at firstname.lastname@example.org / 414-525-6118 or Audra Williams at email@example.com / 414-525-6144.
