This Week, March 6 The Healing Power of Fashion: Dr. Sue Parker and “Remnants of the Storm”
Posted By admin
Nearly a year after Tuscaloosa’s tornado, area residents continue to rebuild, to find new ways to reach out and to heal. This week Tuscaloosa Rotarians will hear of another important part of that ongoing work. Dr. Sue Parker will speak to the club on a project called “Remnants of the Storm.”
Dr. Parker’s project offers high-quality hand-made items of clothing for sale at excellent prices, with proceeds and donations going to aid survivors of the storm.
And this week Rotarians will not only have an opportunity to hear Dr. Parker’s presentation about the project, they will also have an opportunity to support it. She will be bringing multiple items to be displayed and made available for purchase. So bring your checkbooks!
Dr. Parker began her teaching career in 1970 at The University of Alabama in the Department of Clothing, Textiles and Interior Design. During her tenure at the University of Alabama she has taught a range of topics, ranging from entrepreneurship and fashion merchandising to Apparel Production.
