Quilt It , It Figures...Summer Camp for One Student

The cost of sending a student to the Sew Much Fun Summer Camp is $228, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Two years ago, I got hooked on sewing when I took my Girl Scout troop to earn a sewing badge at a local sewing store. Since then I have taught my 5th grade math students to make decorative pillows which they had to pay for themselves. It has been my desire to have the students learn this craft without having to pay for it. I teach at a school that has 64% free lunch and such activities are too expensive for some of the students. This year, I wrote and was awarded a grant for my 5th grade students to learn to sew while making neo-natal quilts for our local hospital. The students and I worked after school for 3 months and have created 20 of the most beautiful quilts to be donated. During this time, several students got hooked on sewing, a few will attend the store's summer camp. One student, a 12 year old Hispanic boy with learning disabilities, wrote in his reflective writing after several weeks of sewing, that he wished to own a sewing store as an adult. He never missed a sewing day, even came to me ready to sew on a day when we weren't going. The ladies who own the shop have stated that he has a gift for sewing and his enthusiasm is overwhelming. We have reserved a space for this student in the July 24th quilting summer camp, just need to find the funds to make this dream come true and let him keep a quilt that he will sew.
