Sewing Seeds Canada Annual Gala October 13, 2018 @ 5:30 pm
Sewing Seeds Canada is hosting our 5th Annual Gala event on Saturday, October 13th where we will be sharing real life stories of the people in our programs. This year the evening will be hosted by Calgary's own, Darrel Janz,Senior Reporter & Host of CTV Calgary's Inspired and will feature founder Sylvia Rempel sharing her own transformative story. Transitioning from CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation to founding a charity teaching others to sew their way to financial independence, this globetrotting entrepreneur shares her passion for teaching others. Sewing Seeds has been transforming lives and communities on four continents for over fifteen years.
January 2018 brought a fifth continent on board as the Sewing Seeds Team ventured to the Caribbean to implement a Beginner’s Sewing Training program in Haiti. Special guests Marc and Lisa Honorat, founders of Haiti Arise, and Sewing Seeds Haiti project partners, will share their experience. Sewing Seeds also introduced its first ever Teacher’s Training program in April 2018 at the Calgary Sewing Centre. At Sewing Seeds, the vision is to see lives transformed through sewing skills- changing lives one stitch at a time. Teaching tomorrow’s teachers will exponentially increase their impact, at home and abroad.
This year we are including a marketplace, silent and live auction items, and the opportunity to directly support women in our programs. Come and get your Christmas shopping done early!
