Turning the light on for youth mental health is the inspiration for the Creativity Shell’s new fabric line, Creativity Glows. After spending the past six years teaching sewing and textile arts classes to a variety of different children in shelters, aba therapy programs, the juvenile justice system, and children suffering from anxiety, depression and more, our organization is convinced that the poor mental health of our young people is the main hinderance to their growth. The Creativity Shell wants sewists to use this collection for all kinds of projects, and most importantly, to make items for children. Pajamas pants for children in shelters, tunic dresses for girls in Africa, tote and zipper bags for foster children to hold their belongings, and book bags for children in the court system. Creativity Glows also hopes to inspire children to learn to sew, and to create, while also gaining philanthropy skills by using their sewing skills to make items for other children in need.
