International Trends and Services facet chair Dionne Hoskins-Brown led the F.A.-Me (Fabulous Active Me) program participants through an activity to learn some of the principals of economic sustainability and entrepreneurship. The activity launched a lesson in how to create content for sales. In this case, the middle school girls learned how to make corsages that will be sold at the Savannah Black Heritage Festival in February. They learned step by step how to make the colorful corsages with a white pearl center. The facilitator used a "cricut" machine ( which looks similar to a printer) that cut various sized circles for sewing them in a manner to form petals. The students learned how to thread a needle and knot a very long thread for tacking (sewing) the circles and pearl in the right form. Pointers for entrepreneurship were given throughout the lesson.
