Grandmothers, mothers and daughters

Posted in Classes, Erina, Make It!

Good to see young girls following in their mum’s and nanna’s footsteps when three generations came together at Erina to have fun sewing a notebook cover and glasses case.  Lots of love and a little bit of learning in this fun class at Hobbysew.

Sewing for Cancer 1st Anniversary

Posted in Erina, Events, Make It!

On the 1st anniversary of the Sewing for Cancer at Erina, Hobbysew extends its thanks to the kindness and generosity of the volunteers of the monthly sewing group, led by Irene Eves, a cancer survivor and volunteer with the Cancer Council, and to those people who have donated amazing amounts of fabric, which is used to make headwear for cancer patients. These articles are sent to numerous hospitals and this year turbans made for children were an astounding success. New designs are planned including Fleece Hats for adults & children.   The sewing group welcomes anyone who would like to help out the sewing group, not just sewing but sorting fabric, ironing, packing, making cups of tea!  Ph Hobbysew Erina 4365 1127 for the next sewing day.
