service learning project, the students in the Spring 2014
Apparel Science II
(FNES 226) course in the Family, Nutrition, and Exercise
Sciences Department at Queens College, CUNY, designed and
created 19 handmade children’s dresses. In this course, students
learned how to hand sew and machine sew different types of
garments as they prepared for a career in fashion, textiles, or
teacher education. Under the direction of Professor Jill Mayer,
the students decorated the dresses with colorful ribbon and
personally tagged each one with a special message. The beautiful
dresses were donated to children in need at the
Children’s Aid Society
in Manhattan. The Society helps children in poverty to
succeed and thrive.
For the first annual Family & Consumer Sciences Day, the
American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences will be
asking families to prepare and eat a healthy meal together on
December 3rd. December 3rd was chosen to honor AAFCS Founder
Ellen Swallow Richards, first woman graduate of MIT. December
3rd is her birthday.
