Burlap & Cashmere is a non-profit organization committed to helping resettled refugee women start their new life in America.
Together we will help these women by:
- Giving them work so they can earn money for their families
- Providing them with their very own sewing machine
- Teaching them how to use the machine and create their own designs
- Teaching them how to create their very own online business selling their own designs and products
On February 1st I flew to Indonesia to purchase fabric needed for our first refugee women to make our first set of bags.
We purchased three Heavy Duty Singer Sewing Machines last week and they arrived yesterday!
I am so excited to announce that I have finalized my trip to purchase Batik fabric so we can start making bags!!
On January 31, 2018 I will fly half way around the world to Medan, Indonesia. While there, I will have the opportunity to visit with long time family friends and enjoy some of the sites and local food.
We were delighted to get the news in the beginning of September that we have we have been granted non-profit status. This was a big first goal, and now we are aimed and ready for the next hurdles. Burlap & Cashmere will start to focus on our financial goasl, and would like to thank those who have already given generously.
It came... It finally came!! After waiting patiently for almost four weeks I finally got the news I have been waiting for.
