Founded January 2013, Seeds of Change began as a volunteer project to help young Burmese pregnant women learn how to sew. In 2018, we began the BanYa Student Program teaching young boys & girls, the basics of sewing.
Thanks to the Phuket Mulligans Golf Society, we were given funds to initially furnish a sewing & crafts center. The Seeds of Change center is located at the Good Shepherd Regional Center, a building affectionately called ‘The Blue House.’ We rely on volunteers and donations, as well as, the proceeds from a few items we sell at the Good Shepherd Thrift Shop.
Our mission: ‘make a difference one stitch at a time’
Our initial start focused on making useful items for a ‘mother-to-be’ and included projects such as:
- Baby Quilts and Clothing
- Shopping Totes and Handbags
- Fabric Toys
- Repair & Embellishment of personal items
Through this project, I have personally revitalized sewing skills once used long ago in high school drama and college/community theatre.
I focus on the art of recycling textiles and reimagine a new life for a variety of discarded items.
