Print Your Own Communication Cards to Share
Have you ever been asked what you’re going to make when you’re at the cutting counter of the fabric store? You take the opportunity to about Sew Powerful and the purses you’re making. People are often very excited, but do they remember to look up the website by the time they get home? Probably not.
Keep a few of these handy cards in your wallet so you will be ready to share the Sew Powerful basics. The card has the web site, sewing supplies needed, and a brief overview of the Sew Powerful mission. There is even a place to include your name and phone number or email, if you wish.
