Fixing my Jacket

Both elbows on one of my favourite jackets has worn out. I have had this jacket for many years now, so it is no surprise it is wearing thin. I would like it to last a few more years though. 

I took it into our Livelihoods building one day to see if any of the women we work with wanted to fix me some elbow pads. They were all scared to work on my jacket but this lady was up for the challenge, putting her newly acquired skills to her first paid, tailoring job.  

I am so amazed to sit in class with these women, seeing their determination to succeed in a new skill.
