This footage captures scenes of a group of women sitting around a table sewing lampshades at a Lions Club clubhouse. Included are close-ups of embroidered trim being sewn on a lampshade and scenes of the full table of women sitting and sewing with their sewing boxes open in front of them. The footage is likely capturing scenes of a women’s group partnering with the Lions Club, possibly to make the lampshades to sell for charitable fundraising.
