The members of the Sewing Bee meet on Tuesday afternoons and the group has gone from strength to strength.
It has been so rewarding to see their skills developing as they continue to complete garment after garment. Dresses, Pyjamas, Blouses, Purses and Backpacks have all been successfully produced in somewhat cramped conditions.
Now all of this has changed and the Bees can spread their wings. We have moved to the Rockspring Centre, where we have a lot more space to work. This has been a welcome development as we have grown in numbers as well as skills. Annie Amu, a new volunteer, has been a very welcome addition to the group.
A keen sewer, like myself, her skill and experience has been an invaluable help to me. I wonder how I ever coped without her.
We also have two new members: Jayne and Kathleen who are both enjoying taking part.
In fact we have been so busy that we have worn out one of the mini sewing machines that served us so well. As soon as they heard the news of this calamity we had generous offers of help from Steph’s Dad Alan, and Fran’s Mum Juliette.
So our first week in the new premises coincided with our first chance to work on our super new sewing machine. We love it! and I’m sure that with its increased capabilities we will soar even higher.
We will keep you all informed of our future successes..
