Did you know that International Friendship Month takes place every year during the month of February? The origin and designation of this observation remain unclear, but the intention does not. International Friendship Month honors the beauty and necessity of friendships in our lives and is a call to bridge the gap between strangers and acquaintances. Let’s bridge the gap in Sew Powerful by making new friends with an initiative we call Flaps of Friendship. It works like this:
- By February 29, enroll in Flaps of Friendship by completing the form linked below. There is a $10 USD enrollment donation.
- Next, sew a Sew Powerful purse flap. Just make the flap (outer fabric, interfacing if needed, and lining). Do not make the whole purse. Use any fabrics, colors, and embellishments you like. Make the flap for either the beginner or intermediate purse.
- By email, you will receive the name and address of a purse maker to whom you will send your flap. This purse maker is your new Friend #1.
- Check your mailbox, because you soon will receive a flap from a purse maker who also enrolled. This purse maker becomes your new Friend #2.
