Sewing circle at the Fenton Street Market!
Posted by sebastianbrown on June 26, 2011
For the second time in a month, the sewing circle, known amongst the members as “Rosal” or rose bush, had its own booth at the bustling Fenton Street Market. They allowed passersby to try their hand at stitching along basic patterns on pre-cut pieces of fabric. A couple folks dropped off fabric donations and more than a dozen expressed interest in paying for a course on learning the basics to using the machine. One lady who runs her own clothing design business in Silver Spring even approached the group about hiring them to be her primary sewers! It was a wonderful time making connections with a variety of Silver Springers and amongst ourselves. Big shout out to Hannah McCann who runs the market and has really been the driving force behind Rosal getting this opportunity to promote the amazing work their doing. Thanks Hannah!!!
