Here is Di, working with some youngsters. They were very interested in her machine, and all the different stitches it could make. She kindly offered to show some of them if there was time, and ended up using the alphabet stitches to sew each pupils' initials on each finished cushion! How generous is that!
Liz always clears her calendar to help young people. She has a wonderful rapport with them, and handles the most difficult child very sensitively. You missed your vocation, Liz.
Gwyneth is another stalwart for sewing with young people. She is patient and kind, and encourages children who struggle. Thank you.
Madeleine came every session, and was unflappable, even when her machine malfunctioned and decided to go on strike. Luckily it was sortable, but she kept calm.
Here are some of the finished products. Thé children's fabric choices always impress me. They have their own ideas, and it fills them with pleasure.
Many thanks to Liz D, Liz I, Gwyneth, Maria (the flattening lady!), Madeleine, Di, Ruth and Lorraine for giving so generously of their time and skills to give good experiences to the possible future sewers. Well done!
