The time has come once again to make “Read” Bags. Last year, our lovely stitching community stepped up to the plate and made 250 book bags for disadvantaged children in Columbia, MO.
Read more about the Jumpstart program here. Read about what you can do to support early childhood education in Columbia, MO.
We’re asking for your help again, here’s what you can do:
-Donate fabric to the “Read” Bag program: A minimum of one half yard will do the trick for one bag. You can give us as much as you want to get rid of!
- Help make the bags. Watch the video, make a bag, donate it to Jumpstart!
Right now, we have canvas panels at Zede’s Sewing Studio that you can pick up in order to make the bags. If you’re far away, you’ll have to supply your own canvas. Also, if you don’t have an embroidery machine, we’ll be embroidering “Read” panels at the shop- you can pick them up and make the bags on your sewing machine.
Enjoy the videos. If you feel inspired, make some bags! They make great gifts for friends and family as well!
Here are the embroidery designs! Choose either .PES or .ART. The 4×4 and 5×7 indicate the hoop size that the designs will fit in.
