Interested in sewing, crafting, or DIY projects? Join us for the first meeting of the Braddock Sewing Club! Bring a project of your own or jump in on what Braddock Youth Project is working on… currently we are finishing our T-shirt quilts and bean bags! We have some basic supplies and a lot of t-shirts. Bring your own machine and sewing kit!
We are presently moving forward with a plethora of exciting activities that shall be coming to fruition in the coming weeks, and it is my distinct pleasure to tell you a little bit about them here!
1. Post Cards from Braddock
The Media Team youth have been working on screen-printed postcards featuring scenes from around Braddock. We are currently at the final stages and should have these completed within the next couple weeks.
I know what you’re thinking: “How can I acquire one of these postcards?” I’m so glad you asked!
2. The BYP Etsy Store
We will be debuting a BYP Etsy Store in the very near future; the previously-mentioned postcards should be the first items available for purchase. In addition, we will be selling artwork selections produced by members of BYP over the years from our archives.
This wonderful piece, created by Autumn Wilson, will soon be available for purchase.
3. Youth Spotlights
We are conducting video interviews with all of the BYP youth; they have been learning about video production, three-point lighting, and editing. We anticipate featuring one spotlight a week, beginning in the very near future.
