Do you have sewing skills to share?

I think you all know how much fun it is to get together with a gang of women and sew.... If you're looking for an opportunity to join a sewing circle in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne you might just find that this is for you....?

There are sewing clubs Footscray, Flemington, Braybrook and Hoppers Crossing that are looking for volunteers to share and learn sewing skills with women who have come to Australia as refugees.

The sewing clubs offer friendship, sewing skills and the opportunity for women who have recently arrived in Australia as refugees to develop their English skills.

The sewing clubs meet each week for a few hours during the day.

So if you have a love of sewing this is a great volunteer opportunity to welcome refugees to Australia and get some of your sewing projects done!

PS. The photos above are from the Great Sewjourn Weekend - Kathryn and Rachel sat either side of me and whipped up the most extraordinarily pretty quilts. I was a bit awestruck.
