Catalog > Programs > Sacred Sewing Room

Enchanted Makeovers mission for "The Sacred Sewing Room Program" is to create an Enchanted Space to Learn, Teach, Share, and Discover the Golden Threads that Connect Us All!


''This Enchanted Makeovers' program does not just set-up sewing rooms full of fabric, patterns, and machines. The program shares the life skill of sewing that also serves as an important coping skill. On an on-going basis, Enchanted Makeovers' volunteer sewing instructors hold classes in the "Sacred Sewing Room". As a result, the women are empowered with new skills that will enable them to sew for their families and can open doors to securing employment or earning money by selling their handmade treasures."

When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight”. Anon
