Join Our 30 Day iSEWlation Challenge!

Thank You For Joining Us From March 20th To April 18th!

We had an amazing time during our iSEWlation Challenge! The activities can still be seen on our Facebook Page as well as our blog. If you haven't ever gotten the free purse patterns, download them here.

To make this fun we will have a free sewing course for beginners (The Sewing Academy)! So if you have a child or grandchild that doesn't know how to sew - and you're intimidated about teaching them - this will be a perfect resource. Daily tips and inspiration for intermediate purse makers. A Daily "Get-To-Know Us" video straight from Zambia. This will allow you to actually see the real people who you are helping by supporting Sew Powerful. Challenges & contest with fun prizes!


Join Us On Facebook From March 20th to April 18th For Daily Updates

Let's come together to change lives during this challenging time! We are asking for your help to make a purse and change a life in the next 30 Days. Be sure to check back here throughout the challenge for updates. All the fun will be happening on our Facebook Page.
