More About This Experience

WSDO is among the oldest and most successful NGO in Pokhara. They have been in operation for over 4 decades helping the underprivileged women in and around Pokhara. You will have a wide selection of cotton fabrics to choose from, these fabrics have all been handmade at the center itself by the women of WSDO. Once you've selected a pattern from the wide array of options available, it's on to measuring your laptop size and then the real work begins. Most of the work is done on the sewing machine so if you've some experience with sewing machines in the past then it should be a breeze for you. However, if you've never used a sewing machine before then you're in for a serious lesson on sewing as Sarswati will first have you practice sewing on a newspaper. As and when she's confident about your ability then it's onto sewing in the rims, sponge and zippers onto the selected fabric. Work alongside several women of WSDO and watch your laptop case take shape in less than 5 hours. We're sure you'll be proudly displaying your laptop case in every cafe you decide to stop by for a cuppa!
