While normally “back to school” is reserved for children, it turns out that this time of year is important for every age. That’s because you’re never too old to continue learning, and it can help you live up to your true potential in everyday life.

Just because it’s the middle of the year doesn’t mean it’s too late to set and achieve big things yet this year. While reevaluating your existing goals, throw in some hard-to-reach newer goals and set your sights high.

Weather across the country is heating up, and it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy mother nature. As it turns out, when it comes to spending time outside, the benefits go far beyond the fresh air.

While the future is uncertain, mankind remains resilient. We’ve learned to adapt to a “new normal” and are slowly making our way back to activities that we set aside for more than a year. A lot has changed, and some of the new techniques and processes surrounding fundraisers, volunteering and fundraising are here to stay.

The upcoming Memorial Day holiday is all about honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. This is the perfect holiday to exercise taking a day “on” instead of a day off.

2020 was a year of clarity. We have all gained wisdom through the joys and sorrows that we have faced both as individuals and communities. As The Sewing Labs looks forward to a brighter tomorrow, we understand and celebrate the lessons that we can learn from listening to the experiences of another. It is from that starting point that we are inviting you to join us in The Sewing Labs first Make’n HERstory art exhibit.

Giving back to the world starts with you. How will you focus on your mental health this week?

This year, instead of simply focusing on your loved ones, consider using February as a time to spread love all over your community. From small acts of kindness to lasting community connections, there are so many ways you can show love this month.

This is TSL's second year making fleece hats and scarves for the homeless. This year, we are putting the hats and scarves into the KC Community Bags and Volunteer KC is ALREADY DISTRIBUTING the goods to the homeless! Please consider making a donation of fleece so we can get as many hats and scarves into the hands of those who need it most! Half a yard of fleece will make one hat and scarf set.

Don't have fleece to give? Please consider making a monetary donation to The Sewing Labs to support this great project.

Helping others can provide a new sense of purpose that may have been dwindling as a result of the new way of life we’ve endured in 2020. So in order to breathe new life into 2021 and beyond, it’s time to look outside ourselves and focus on others.

The good you put out into the world will not only benefit the organization you’re volunteering with, but also will leave your family feeling good about the positive work you’ve accomplished together.

You'll fall in love with all the great classes, events and workshops happening in February!

2020 has been a year of uncertainty due to the COVID pandemic, but The Sewing Labs is proud to have been part of a community of sewists who came together to sew and distribute over 63,000 masks and counting. As we continue to reopen for training, workshops, and classes, we need your help to raise needed funds to close out this year. Our goal is to raise $5,000 with a quilt raffle.

Giving back and spreading the love this holiday season is sure to make your friends, family and loved ones smile.
