SEWN TOGETHER WITH THE OLD SCHOOL

In the short time that we have been open, our fabulous community hall and cafe has become a social hub and activity centre for many people. In these difficult times, we feel that this social unity is more important than ever.

So, while our doors are closed, we are launching a new project to help keep minds and hands occupied, provide a little fun and creative challenge, and bring together our community in a shared activity. Even if we are separated by walls, doors, and two metres of space right now.

We are calling this project: SEWN TOGETHER!

Bringing our Crafty Mondays out into the community, we are providing the template for a quilt block that you can make at home. Once the restrictions are lifted, we will gather everyone back together – in person – to join the blocks into one amazing community wall hanging.

And don’t worry if you are not a sewer – this project will be suitable for all ages and abilities!

We will also be providing free packs containing fabric, instructions and even a needle and thread, for those needing sewing supplies. A limited number of packs will be made available from PRIME PET SUPPLIES (see below), so they can be picked up while people are shopping for your basic necessities.

For those who have materials at home, you can download the template for the quilt square and the instruction leaflet below.

PLEASE RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING WHEN COLLECTING PACKS, AND BE SURE TO LEAVE SOME FOR OTHER PEOPLE TOO.

Packs should only be collected as part of shopping trips for basic supplies or during daily exercising. Please do not make a special trip to get one.

We are grateful for the support given to us by:
