Women Empowering Women | Project Patch Shop

Last summer, I ordered beautiful hand embroidered hoops sold by an organization called Pins and Needles in India. This organization works with underprivileged women and helps them become self sufficient through the art of hand embroidery and sewing. This group of women were taught these skills in order to be able to make and sell hand embroidered hoops and cloth bags.


My daughter had just graduated high school and was enjoying her last summer at home before moving on to Berkeley, where she would be going to school for the next 4 years. Her last project, Rescue A Book, had finished when she graduated, and she was looking for a new social entrepreneurial project to continue on with. 

After seeing the hoops I ordered, she immediately wanted to get involved. I was so excited to see what she came up with, as she did wonders with her last project. The result was a social enterprise called Project Patch Shop

The goal of the project is to sell hand embroidered patches that she creates using hand embroidered material bought from these impoverished women in India. These patches can be ironed on any fabric to adorn them, or just make a fashion statement. 






I have always being a big advocate of women helping women, and when one of these women is your own daughter the feeling is INCREDIBLE!! 




So please check her shop out, give her a follow on social media, and make a purchase if you like. When you buy a patch from her shop, you are empowering a girl who is trying to make a difference in this world by helping underprivileged women in India <3

A Proud Mama!!

  12. What an incredible way to give back. Sewing is such an important skill and I feel like it is lost on newer generations if it is not taught by their mothers and grandmothers. Beautiful!
