Here at Marymount, we love to show our school spirit. And we love to show our pride with various forms of “Regal wear”. Unfortunately, this is often expensive, and can lead to the exclusion of students. Student looking sad in uniform This is where we came up with our plan! We would like to provide quality Regal wear to our students for a lower price. We want to embroider our Regal wear right here, in the school. This would help us lower the cost of the clothing by eliminating the third party. Which would mean that students will be able show their support for our school! At a lower price for both students and parents. Shirts like this… And this… And this! Will be able to look like this… And this… And this… Without costing upwards of $50! We will also be able to customize our shirts!! What are the benefits? Stitch it MMA will raise money for more school activities. Provide cheap apparel for students, as well as opportunities for co-op placements, classroom opportunities and potential student jobs. It will allow us to make apparel for other students in the school board, encourage creativity, support entrepreneurship skills and develop skills. It will also allow us to personalize our own apparel to the way we desire! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at Stitch it MMA, and use the hashtag #stitchitmma
