Girls Time Out Young Women’s Support Service Inc
Girls Time Out Young Women’s Support Service Inc provides a range of programs and support to women that are homeless, living in rough conditions, pregnant or need help with day to day living. They are committed to responding and attending to the needs of young women in their community that require this support, to help their growth and human potential.
Their mission is for these women to live in an equitable and culturally welcoming society. To ensure that they are empowered and valued, experience respect and support and have access to human necessities such as education, affordable housing and peer/parenting support.
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing or embroidering this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
For this month’s charity, we are asking you to have a go at sewing a cosmetics bag which will be gifted to the young women participating in the programs at GTO Young Women’s Support Service Inc.
We have selected a beginners pattern of a cosmetic bag from bluprint (formerly known as Craftsy) for this project. The project can be downloaded for free if you are a bluprint member and is a great project to introduce beginners to some of the many techniques as they include well-written instructions as well as a YouTube video that is easy to follow and should allow you to achieve a great result!
