Sacred Sewing Room

In February 2013 I had the honor of traveling to Detroit to work with the philanthropic organization Enchanted Makeovers as they transformed a shelter for homeless women into a place of beauty, complete with a sewing room. See my previous post that shares that journey. It was a wonderful experience and I have been working with the organization ever since as a member of the board of directors. I’m excited to announce that this summer Enchanted Makeovers is embarking on a Sacred Sewing Room Tour. Six shelters across the country will be given a beautiful, modern sewing room, including one in my hometown of Kansas City!


Here I am with the founder of Enchanted Makevers, Terry Grahl

 Recently, the Sacred Sewing Room Tour was featured in Where Women Create Magazine. I want to share the article with you so you can learn more about the organization and the positive impact it is having on the lives of so many women. Click on either image below to open the full pdf. article. Thanks to Jo from Where Women Create for letting us share this article. To see more of this fabulous magazine, pick up a copy at your local newstand.

I can’t wait until September when it is Kansas City’s turn to host a Sacred Sewing Room transformation! I will keep you updated with the tour news as the summer continues. Read more about the organization by visiting and I hope that you will find the program as inspiring as I do. I encourage you to get involved and consider donating to this wonderful organization.

    As a sewer and someone who has the opportunity to be involved in this cause I thank you from my heart for doing this. It is so right on so many levels as I am sure you know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
