Featured Product: Hand Sewn Bags

The act of sewing teaches calmness, discipline and patience. It improves hand eye coordination, inspires creativity and cultivates emotional well being. A lot of love goes into every single stitch of our hand sewn bags. The high quality work found in these colorful totes is evidence of the focus, determination and skill demonstrated by the talented and dedicated participants at SEEDs for Autism. We are happy to present these colorful items as our featured product for the month of August. 

NATE
Our hand sewn bags are made in the Sewing Department. Being in the Sewing Department is a lot of fun. It can be tough at times especially for me who has issues with fine motor skills. But every time that I am in the Sewing Department I learn and try to get better at it. Our current sewing instructor’s name is Tina and she joined SEEDs about a month ago.

When you buy something from SEEDs not only are you getting a great product, but you are supporting our program as well. Our hand sewn bags are priced at 15 dollars a piece. I hope those that are reading this article will go out and buy our hand sewn bags.

GREAT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

The colorful, handcrafted bags made at SEEDs make excellent reusable bags! They aren’t wasteful because the bags can be used again and again, unlike plastic bags!

MY EXPERIENCE IN THE WOOD DEPARTMENT

Hello my name is Daniel and I’m writing about my experience in the wood department at SEEDs. My experience has been good and I have learned how to turn wood on a lathe with the tools such as the roughing gouge. Mr. Ed has been a good teacher, he has helped me learn about the tools and the lathe. The electric lathe is fun to work with because I can make pens and bowls. I made cattails for Summer Winds recently with wood. I had to sand them until they were smooth. I started with 150 grit paper and then went to 220 grit paper.

I made a coffee container on a lathe and it got purchased by my Mom at the last show we had at Seeds. It makes me very confident in myself.  It was hard in the beginning for me to get the right motions for the different tools but I learned how to use them for their intended purposes. Turning wood is very relaxing and it is very fun.

I did not know anything about wood turning when I first got to SEEDs for Autism. It was hard so I had to learn about how to control the tools. Practice helped me perfect my wood turning skills.
