Sewwing for Charity (Australia)
Recently I joined with a lovely bunch of ladies who volunteer for charity, they collaborate to donate items to many different charities every month.
The head honcho Cass explains it like this....
The purpose of this group is to collaborate together to sew and donate requested items to our chosen charities and community organisations in Australia.
You can help by gathering/ donating fabric or by sewing or both!
Volunteers can come from anywhere as fabric can be posted, and we have sewing groups popping up in different areas. If you would like to join or start one email us email@example.com or message us via facebook .
Any fabric donated should be clean, smoke free and suitable to make items such as bags, pillowcases, play mats, clothing, patchwork blankets and other items.
Now you may be thinking "but your crochet not sew" and you would be correct but whilst the group is mainly filled with sewer's they do take crochet and knit items as well. I have been living next door to Cass for over a year before I found out all about her group, wish Id found out sooner.
July and August we are working on preemie items for a few different organisations but this changes every month or so.
If you would like more information about this group or you would like to help or donate then leave me a comment and I will contact you or email me. Alternatively you can check out the group on Facebook and email Cass for all the info you will need.
