Sewing is such an awesome hobby, and one of the most fulfilling ways to use your sewing skills is through service. There are many worthy organizations that are in need of donations from those of us with sewing talent. Wouldn’t this be a great way to get a child interested in sewing and service at the same time? I have gathered up 5 awesome opportunities here for you.
Sewing Service Projects
This organization provides purses to adolescent girls in Africa so they have a way to carry sanitary products, which helps to keep them in school.
Donators create kits including cloth menstrual pads and related hygiene products to send to girls in Africa.

This charity exists to bring hope and dignity to women around the world. For many of these girls, this will be the only dress they ever own. To date, they’ve delivered over 2,000,000 dresses to girls around the world.
