AT students donate classwork to Crisis Center babies
Thursday, December 4, 2014
Over the past 6 years, apparel production students have created more than 500 infant gowns and 30 blankets and donated them to the local Crisis Center.
Each semester, students in AT 300 Apparel Production 1 make the gowns from cotton interlock knit, learning to use the overlock machine and to sew with knit fabrics, according to Marla Day, senior curator of the K-State Historic Costume and Textile Museum, who teaches the class.
This year students donated more than 50 tiny gowns and 6 baby blankets to the center, which serves victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault in Clay, Geary, Marshall, Pottawatomie and Riley counties.
