The Sewing Circle make their debut at the Fenton Street Market
Posted by sebastianbrown on June 7, 2011
This past Saturday four women from Rosal, formerly known as the Long Branch Sewing Circle had their own booth at the Fenton Street Market. Without enough products to sell already, they were largely there to gain visibility and have community members join their contact list so that they can be in touch around donatinos, upcoming paid classes and alteration requests. Sitting behind their machines and working on their individual projects, more than a dozen folks stopped by interested to learn more about the group. Several offered fabric and one retired lady asked if she could help teach English in return for learning the basics. It was a wonderful opportunity to make some connections and practice talking about the amazing work that they’ve embarked upon.
