My little friend is being goofy.....she wanted me to come back and take another picture but I loved this one. She made seven drawstring backpacks yesterday and she has 8 sold.....she is going to town with this.
I was bad, didn't take picture of our sew day today. They made drawstring purses and the little sew caddies (I try to have a small project that they can finish in minutes but I am running out of ideas).
So...I asked my friend that is over the Human Resources Dept just what the name of this organization is and what it is suppose to do and this is her response.
It is called the S.O.S program (Skills, Opportunity, and Success) funded by ARRA through the Dept of Commerce and administered by the Human Resources Dept. It is suppose to help displaced workers and find a way to stimulate the economy. The participants receive a stipend for attending and receive training for certain skills.
One of the skills is computers and 6 point presentations. I think there are 25 that are going to learn to sew.
The day I went the whole room was full of people learning the 6 point presentation.
Just thought I would throw that info out there for you.
