The girls traveled a great distance to get some sewing instruction and not just in miles. Five young ladies, with their two chaperones, came down from their homes in Athens, Georgia, to the Goodland home of Donna and James Inglis, as part of the Young Designers Sewing Program.
The girls, all black, from the lower end of the socio-economic stratum and considered “at-risk,” came and stayed with the Inglises, spending three days and nights in Goodland, getting intensive instruction not only in sewing, but also cooking, deportment, and even fishing.
