Diversity – what would you like the future to look like?
Diversity is a club for members age 19+.
We want to find out what sort of thing you would like to do and how often you would like to meet up so we can start to make plans to offer some regular social activities for Working Together members.
We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas so we can all put our thinking hats on!
Please complete our simple survey or contact a member of the team to chat through your ideas.
Sewing Bee is back , buzzing again…
Louise tells us all about it…
Collins’ English dictionary defines a sewing bee as
“a small informal social gathering based around the activity of making clothes or other things with a needle and thread.”
This is an excellent summary of what happens at Working Together when our Sewing Bee meets on a Monday afternoon.
Since moving to the Rockspring Centre, we have plenty of space where we enjoy making things for ourselves, to sell and as gifts for friends.
During the past few months we have been back and able to meet again we have made drawstring rucksacks, lavender bags, lined handbags and wrist band pin cushions.
It’s a very relaxed activity as we all chat, often laugh and sometimes listen to music as we sew! Members are encouraged to take their time to choose their own fabrics, ribbons and threads from our collection so that
they produce something that is entirely personal to them.
Unfortunately, because of Covid we have had to reduce the number of members who can attend each day, which in turn has reduced numbers currently attending Sewing Bee sessions and our ability to tackle slightly more adventurous projects. We would very much like to find another volunteer to help for a couple of hours on a Monday – no sewing experience necessary, we can teach you! If you can help please get in
If any members are interested in joining us for the Sewing Bee sessions please contact us.
