Hi - I’m Megan Avery and I have a sewing studio in Hoboken NJ where we teach people of all ages how to sew!

This April I’ll be taking my sewing studio on the road &  volunteer teaching kids in Mexico how to sew.

Can you help?

There’s a little Mayan village called Macario Gomez just outside of Talum, Mexico. A women named Erika, who is originally from Jersey City, opened a BnB in this area and since has also started a much needed after school program there called La Escuelita de Macario Gomez .

This after school program is completely run by monetary donations and volunteers and she started the Escuelita because as she puts it on their facebook page:

“They have no afterschool, no library, no music, no trips anywhere…no big homes with comfy sofas to read on, some do not even own chairs….or tables,or real plates to eat from! the list of what they lack could go on and on… Yet the children are not bitter or depressed, they are happy and eagerly participate in any community activity – park cleanup , animal rescues, etc..  And they love to learn, draw, read, dance .“

I’m super excited to be spending a week there in April to volunteer teach the kids of La Escuelita de Macario Gomez how to sew!

I’m writing today to let you know that I could use some help from you! I’ll be bringing all kinds of sewing supplies with me from the studio, as well as the ones that people have so generously donated! 

I was in shock to see that my Amazon Wishlist of sewing supplies we needed was purchased in the span of about 4 hours!

After recieving numerous messages about how people still wanted to contribute after the wishlist was completed, I started this gofundme so we could help La Escualita with their operating costs. 

Please help us reach our goal of raising $1000 to cover some of the costs of this wonderful after school program for some kids who need it most! 

xo, Megan
