Interested in Service Sewing?

Join other Human Ecology teachers for a morning of learning. We will meet with retirees from Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS) who work on a variety of charity and service sewing projects. Discover what they make, who they support and donate to, and where they get supplies from. Take some ideas from them back to your own classroom!
