Zambia Design Academy Post #2
As I mentioned yesterday, I’m preparing (and super excited!) to go to Zambia to vist Esther’s Needs Care Center and spend a few days training ladies in the sewing program (you can read about that here.)
Scissors, scissors and more scissors… Esther mentioned to me that good quality scissors are hard to come by, so I thought it would be great to collect some to give to the co-op. (Hopefully this isn’t a red flag as my checked bag goes through the aiport!) I have some basic stainless steel scissors that can be sharpened, some tiny embroidery scissors (my favorite, I use these all the time!), some pinking sheers, and a few pairs of “lefty” scissors too. I think this is a good collection of basic sewing scissors and should work well for their program
I thought it’d be great to put together a list of tips for the proper care of scissors, so that they will last as long as possible. I’d love your help in putting that list together!
Please share your thoughts in the comments below I’m going to put them all into a PDF and have it printed for her to have in their sewing room…
