Fashion and Fabrics Students Use Sewing Skills for Community Service
The Fashion and Fabrics classes at Brush High are using their sewing skills to help premature babies at the Rainbow and Babies Hospital NICU. Basic sewing techniques learned in class are incorporated into a preemie blanket project. The 10X12 inch flannel blankets are used as a way to help the mom bond with her newborn. The mom's scent remains on the blanket providing the baby with a sense of connection when the mom isn't present.
Our Brush students have donated over one hundred preemie blankets to the NICU. The project is an excellent way for the students to support the community.The NICU is very appreciative of our students' generosity.
