Started in January 2012, the Good Shepherd Crafts Center called Seeds of Change has experienced a wonderful year since moving into dedicated space almost a year ago. Our center promotes the transfer of sewing skills to the ladies in residence at the Home for Hope. These young pregnant women (mothers-to-be of Burmese migrant worker husbands) usually spend only the last 2 or 3 months with us before their delivery.
At the Seeds of Change crafts center, weekly sessions are conducted to teach basic sewing and craft skills. All of our supplies are donated through funds raised by the Phuket Mulligans or through individual and donations. Most of our projects used reclaimed fabrics (sometimes new scraps) and we really take great pride in our novel approach to recycling.
Our wish list includes:
- Volunteer time to help teach a skill (knitting, crochet, embroidery, sewing, jewelry making, etc.) – a typical workshop is 2 hours and held each Tuesday morning from 10AM to Noon.
- Fabric – new and used, we can never have enough
- Threads and yarns – all sizes, colors, and types are put to use
- Scissors, needles, buttons, zippers, etc.
- Paper patterns – especially for baby items
- Broken jewelry
