There are lots of challenges that come along with teaching the on-going sewing classes that are open to the community of San Vicente. One of the largest is how to keep all the kids occupied who tag along with their moms or aunts. The box of Spanish children's books, coloring books and crayons keep them somewhat busy. But, each time it's important to be armed with a few extra treasures. This week I cut up colored plastic straws that the little girls to string to make necklaces. They're on their way to learning the first skills of sewing. Won't be long and they will join in on the classes.
