Mrs. Molton from Washburn ME is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sewing With Style II: Tools Of The Trade.

My students need basic sewing tools and fabric to sew with!

My Students

My students are energetic, polite and enthusiastic. They are also highly creative individuals with very positive outlooks on life. They help their fellow students without even being asked. They are readily accepting of any other individuals that transfer in and they are always open to new experiences. Even as high school students they have a desire to learn and grow as individuals that I have rarely seen in the 36 years I have been teaching.

My students are preparing to meet the world head on and their desire and ability to learn and participate are simply amazing.

I need your help to prepare them to approach life with creativity, enthusiasm and instill the desire to continue experimenting and learning. This project will help make this happen and help record those experiences!

The Community as a whole is very supportive of the students and district but the lack of funding has left us with no budget for some somewhat unusual purchases.

My Project

Our new program is almost ready to start! Now that my students have access to a sewing machine, we need basic supplies like the sewing kit that includes pins, tape measures, thread and needles. We also need scissors to cut the fabrics and an iron to iron the fabrics and to lay open the seams. It is impossible to sew without these things. We are also asking for the jellyroll fabric strips because we have no supplies to cut our own fabrics with yet.

"Our souls are feed with needles and thread." This is an old saying but it describes what I want for my students!
