Sew Excited!! We will have a fully stocked Sewing Studio Center with 5 Sewing Machines!

Yes! I am "sew" excited! As a sewing enthusiast, I am "sew" thrilled to be able to share my passion for sewing and building sewing skills with my students. The art studio at Willow Brook Elementary School was recently awarded a grant of more than $1,800 to expand its sewing studio center. YAY!

We are one of nine schools in the region to be awarded a grant by Maritz in collaboration with the Arts and Education Council. I am excited about rearranging the room to fit the new studio and my mind is racing with ideas! I can not wait to expand our current sewing studio center that houses a Viking sewing machine from the PTO, and a solid Singer Sewing machine that was my first sewing machine from my mom! The grant will provide the purchase of four new sewing machines and a variety of sewing supplies, such as scissors, quilting rulers, bobbins, thread, needles, rotary cutters and fabric. We plan to use our sewing skills to give back to the community in a variety of simple sewing projects!  See what schools were awarded from the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Read more about it on Pattonville's site or on the Arts and Education site.
