Spent the afternoon in the air conditioned sewing room with Florida, Mary Pat, and Elizabeth.

While this group of young people toured UMCOR they visited the sewing room.  Elizabeth explained how the school bags were made.  First the serge machine makes the  bag ,

then the handles that have been sewn are attached to the bag in just the right place,

then the bag is sewn around the top edge catching the bottom  part of the handles and then a square is sewn around each handle to make the handles strong.

Toward the end of the day our group came in to observe the school bag process and see the sewing room.  These youth have packed MANY school bags over the last 5 years at UMCOR.

Working in the sewing room with Elizabeth and Florida has been a new and wonderful experience during this mission trip.
