Sewing Booth with Ms. Laura: Making Dresses for Refugee Camps in Africa
October 9th was the Montgomery County Girl Scout Vendor Fair. I had the wonderful privilege to work and present at the sewing booth. The booth was Mrs. Laura’s sewing booth. Mrs. Laura is a sewing expert. She teaches sewing classes for girls eight and up.
Mostly registered Girl Scouts come, but they are able to invite a friend. She organizes classes at Joann Fabrics, both locations in Maryland and at her home.
My troop and other Girl Scouts take classes at her house to learn more about sewing and different patterns. Currently, my troop is working on making dresses out of pillowcases for refuge camps in Africa. At the booth, I sewed a couple of dresses to demonstrate the dresses. Mrs. Laura talked about the classes and showed examples of what you sew in the classes and gave out flyers.
Before the fair started I was a little discombobulated, because I needed a plug for the the sewing machine and a extension cord. Thank goodness my Dad gave me an extension cord to use. Everyone was a little scrambled because everyone wanted a good table. But overall, it was a great vendor fair. I definitely want to come back next year, and I hope to do my own booth.
