BodyStitch n’ bitch hits the mark

On Feb. 22 the News published an article titled Stitch n’ Bitch: A Tie That Binds, by Roxanne Stasyszyn.

This was a story that provided a brief glimpse into a program generously funded by the Yukon government’s Women’s Directorate called Restore, Rediscover Renew, and touched upon the lives of a small group of incredibly resilient women who participated.

This was a joint project of the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre and the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Society of Yukon, also known as FASSY, who would not only like to thank the government of Yukon for its support but also Blood Ties Four Directions and Kaushee’s Place.

The article was insightful and hinted at the incredible journey these brave women have embarked upon. The activities undertaken provided the catalyst and opportunity for guided discussions that have led to personal growth, awareness and greater connection to the community.

Though this program has come to an end, FASSY will continue to look for ways to support this group as it moves forward.
