...you might be able to assist a friend of CE and fellow sewing entrepreneur, Tameka Matae.  She's developing Urban Stitches, a new sewing studio to educate the local young people in the art and life skill of sewing, and is in need of just a few more sewing machines to get the program underway. Your generous donation of a used sewing machine (in good working condition) or supplies will be greatly appreciated and publicly acknowledged on the Urban Stitches weblog.  To learn more about the program, feel free to contact Tameka Matae at (412) 726-4109 or sew_1@msn.com  

and let her know you're also a friend of CE.  You'll read more about Urban Stitches in the next issue of Fabrigasm, coming soon!
