Sustainable Skills Classes – Sewing, Quilting, Painting & Drawing

S E W I N G classes  &  ARPILLERA – quilting social commentary


Marci and Carolina came up with the idea to host workshops within their community  to teach skills that promote CREATIVITY and TRUST for a brighter SUSTAINABLE future.
Able to imagine and create; using originality, stimulating the imagination; extending beyond the normal limitations.

To have confidence in something or someone; to know something in your heart that the future holds much more than the grim news we are bombarded with.  In one word, to promote Sustainability  with a vision: Creative insight or imaginative foresight and wisdom; something that is seen in a dream.

Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come. The term was used by the Brundtland Commission which coined what has become the most often-quoted definition of sustainable development as development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

    and then you wrote:
    30 dollars for one class

    Of corse I prefere all 4 classes for only 25 dollars wich means extra good deal for me:

    6 dollars a classe. Is that right? then it is not possible 30 per class.
    Plus, I would like to know how much time does it last each course.

    Thank you for this great idea and for answering,

      It’s $30 each per class or $25 each if you take 4 classes. You should contact the organizers directly for more info.
