About

Supporting 21st Century Women with 19th Century Crafts

I am a high school English teacher in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. In 2011, one of my students approached me to sponsor an after school group for girls interested in women's rights. Thus, Fearless Females was born.

Around 75% of the students at my school live below the poverty line. For them, education is a way to better their lives, but many of them have difficulties affording college. I am trying to help one girl each year who is passionate about women's rights by giving her a scholarship of $1,000. Applicants will have to be enrolled in a 4-year university, and will have to write a short essay about how they have bettered the lives of women in their school or community. Every penny over the cost of what it takes to produce the items in this shop will contribute to the scholarship fund. I am not making any money off of this shop.

If you would like to donate more than the cost of your item to this incredible cause, you can do so at paypal.me/sewfragettes or contact me for other options.

    Hi! I'm Ashley. I'm a high school teacher in the Chicago 'burbs. I started knitting and sewing when my daughter was born 3 years ago, but I soon found that crafting for charity was really fun! I love making a difference with my crafts.
