Home and family August.
During August we are paying it forward while will focusing on all things home: interiors.
Now is the time to make pillows, hot water -bottle covers, rag rugs, draft blockers. Even better make something for someone who is special to you or sew ones of our projects for the Christchurch City Mission or the Home and Family society.
Learn to sew Monday and our drop in sessions at our space at Te Kura Tawhito, The Old School. We can run though the basics of sewing zips and piping while you make a pillow or toiletry bag. Show you how to up -cycle woollen blankets to make a original hot water- bottle cover. Re-cycle old clothes into a rug rag, a great way to preserve the memories of baby clothes or maybe your favorite T shirt that has passed its used by date.
We have been getting some wonderful donations to the Stitch-o-mat fabric library. All this is open for public use supported by your Koha (donation)
Our machines are increasing and soon will have industrial sewing machine fleet.
While doing all this you can still come and sew the classic Stitch-o-mat sandwich bags or market bag. Make a beeswax warp or a fairy tale arpon or mend your clothes.
