We have created the Lakota Sewing Circle for any one who is interested in learning how to sew or just to simply be in the company of fellow sewers while receiving encouragement, sharing ideas and learning from each other

I am working with two other ladies to get our Sewing Circle up and running to help ladies who aren't able to devote any time to their Sewing and Arts and Crafts projects because of busy schedules, the inability to get a break from watching children, or the lack of financial ability to afford materials to complete projects. So far, through donations, we have obtained two sewing machines, two totes of scrap fabric, a few spools of thread and a shoe box full of patterns. We are asking for help to obtain more Sewing materials and Arts & Crafts materials the ladies can use.
Our first meeting was Saturday, April 12, 2014 at the Oyate Community Center in Lakota Homes. We will be meeting again on April 26, 2014. We have set up sewing stations (table with two sewing machines, ironing boards and irons set up for use, an area to cut fabric, and tables for anyone to sit and work on projects) for participants to use to complete their projects. During our meet, a few ladies said they were excited for the Sewing Circle because it will allow them to have actual "down time"and give them a chance to express themselves creatively. One lady stated that sewing is a form of therapy for her and is looking forward to our next meet.
Our last meet went incredibly well with more sewers joining the Lakota Sewing Circle. We are still looking for donations, please share our campaign and visit our Facebook page- Lakota Sewing Circle for updates and photos! Thank you for your support!
We've added our member spotlight to our Lakota Sewing Circle Facebook page. This will allow everyone to meet each member in our sewing circle. Visit our page and meet our first member spotlight: Dollie Red Elk! Thank you for supporting us!
We are still going strong! Yay! We will be meeting every other Saturday for the rest of the 2015 year. We just met on January 10th. We have a great variety of skills levels of sewers with everyone teaching each other, sharing ideas and encouraging one another. We have a Facebook page: Lakota Sewing Circle, stop by and check us out! Thank you for your support!
