We are so incredibly grateful for each person that has taken the time to coordinate a local event in support of Sew Powerful. We’ve been blown away that events are happening all over the world and the truth is – we haven’t had any resources, recommendations, or tools to assist. You’ve pioneered it – and made up the tools and resources that you needed to be successful – and that is – of course – Sew Powerful! On this page, over the next few years, we hope to assemble these types of resources and make them available for you. If you’ve done a Sew Powerful event, and created a helpful resource that you don’t see on this page, be sure to let us know and we’ll add it.
Here are a few recent events that we thought sounded awesome! We hope they inspire you too:
