Sewing kit

Key Features

Sewing skills open the door to additional income that can help a family make ends meet. These kits are often given through NGO-supported programs that teach sewing or tailoring and provide the tools to make and mend clothing or to begin a business.


By assembling the refugees sewing Kits, you’ll help distressed women in their recovery process by providing encouragement and practical comfort.  Your group has the option of donating your Kits to a local charity of your choice, or International Logistics Services can arrange to pick them up and distribute them to at risk women.


Your Sewing Kit can include the following:


  • 3 spools of white thread
  • 3 spools of black thread (each spool 250 yards minimum; all-purpose; cotton/polyester or 100% polyester)
  • 1 metric fabric tape measure
  • 1 thimble (medium size)
  • 1 dressmaker’s scissors (good quality)
  • 1 pkg needles (approx 25)
  • 1 pkg straight pins (approx 100)
  • 12 matching, shirt-style, black or white buttons (approx size ½–1 in; place loose buttons in a resealable plastic bag)
