Sew for Charity

Bridgewater, NJ

Please Join Us in Bridgewater, NJ

The Kindred Spirit Purse Makers is an active Sew Powerful Chapter meeting 6 times per year. The Chapter members stitch beautiful purses and always enclose an encouraging note card inside each purse. Near Morris and Union Counties, this chapter meets in historic Somerset County, not far from George Washington’s winter headquarters during the American Revolution.

If you live in the Somerset-Morris-Union Counties area, we would love for you to join us. Simply express your interest below and when prompted, choose Bridgewater, NJ from the drop-down menu.

We look forward to you joining our global team of volunteers who sew to make a difference.

How You Can Make a Difference

The purses you make will be gifted to schoolgirls in the African country of Zambia. The purses will be filled with reusable feminine hygiene supplies, soap, and underwear so the girl can attend school all month. Sew Powerful hires adults in Zambia living in extreme poverty. They are trained and paid a living wage to make the contents of the purses. The result is a triple benefit:

  • Schoolgirls have a chance to excel in their studies and complete their education.
  • Adults earn wages to feed, clothe, and house their families, giving them dignity and hope.
  • Volunteers use their talents to make purses bringing them immeasurable joy knowing their efforts have changed lives.
