Fabric Kits


Sewing is a valuable skill, one that leads to a reliable income for many women and men. Fabric kits supply vocational training programs with fabric – for teaching sewing and for newly trained tailors to launch their sewing businesses.

Our Ministry

In the 12 months ended September 30, 2014, the people of St. John's supplied, assembled, and shipped 13 fabric kits to the LWR warehouse in New Windsor, Maryland.

Getting Involved

Each fabric kit should include the following items:

  • Two spools of matching or neutral-colored general purpose thread, 250 to 300 yards each
  • Two pieces of cotton or cotton-blend fabric (no knits or 100% polyester, please). Each piece should match one of these sizes: 2-1/4 yards or 60"-wide fabric, 3 yards of 44"-wide fabric, or 4 yards of 36"-wide fabric

Fabric should not have stains or holes. Pieces do not need to match in size, color, or pattern.
