Sew Together

Dear Frangipani Friends,

We had an amazing day meeting old friends and new faces at our fourth Sew Together Workshop in November. It was such a privilege to spend a day teaching this amazing group of Tasmanians. Our students, clients of partner organisation Li-Ve Tasmania joined us for morning and afternoon sewing workshops at the Multicultural Centre in Moonah.

They all finished tote bags, Odds and Sods Bags and book covers to take home. Thank you so much to the Frangipani Fabrics community for making this day possible.

 

 

There were so many things we loved about our July workshops. The classroom was filled with so much excitement and chatter as our return students tackled more difficult projects with enthusiasm - this was so encouraging to see!


Participants built upon their sewing skills, learning to sew curves quilting touching and playing curiously and confidently with the sewing machines, handling the fabric steadily as it moved through the machine, and pinning with increasing precision.

 

We are currently fundraising for our next workshop, date TBA. Visit Chuffed.org to donate:) or purchase our Sew Together Raffle Tickets!

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.
