Sew Together

Wow.  We loved sharing the gift of sewing at our Sew Together Workshop on 28 September! 

This all-abilities workshop made the joy of sewing available to kids with disability and their siblings.

Thank you to everyone who supported our first crowd funding campaign in conjunction with Li-Ve Tasmania! 

 

Our target was $1987 and we raised an amazing $2326 thanks to the generosity of the Tasmanian community.  The extra funds will go towards our next Sew Together workshop later in the year .  

We are so happy to share these gorgeous photos from our workshop.  Everyone who attended finished their projects and most kids sewed hearts for the 1000 Hearts compassion project.  These hearts will be donated to the paediatric ward at the Royal Hobart Hospital, a cause that has a special meaning for many of these children.

Comments from sewists parents included how proud they were of their children and how important it was to be able to offer them new experiences and expect the best of them. 
 
Frangipani Fabrics staff loved meeting these kids and said that they felt like they were part of something bigger than just a sewing workshop. 
 
Lovely handmade cushions and rabbits are on these young sewists' beds.  We hope to hold many more workshops funded via https://chuffed.org/project/sew-together.

 

Two of the stars of our Sew Together workshop with @livetassie, siblings Amelie and Maddie, were featured in The Mercury! They are proudly displaying the hearts they sewed for the @1000_hearts project, which will be donated to sick children and their families who visit the Paediatric Unit at the RHH.
So happy to be a part of this story!
