Some of us mums organised a crafty fundraiser at my little boy’s preschool a little while ago. We wanted to raise money to upgrade the playground furniture. It was a great little event! The rule was that we could only sell hand made things. Hand made by us of course. Need I say more? We loved it!!
Ok, so it wasn’t for everyone, but those of us who love to pick up a needle and thread were well up for it. So much so, that we organised an evening when about 10-15 of us got together at one of the mums’ house with our little sewing machines and our already-started-projects and sat around the big table to work together and help each other. I absolutely loved that evening!
It made me wonder why we don’t do this anymore? Wasn’t it great when women sewed together and chatted and sang and formed a unique bond between them? And their little children just absorbed all the knowledge from around that table?
They are such happy pictures!
I am so starting something similar when we’re settled back in the UK!! Do any of you attend anything similar?
And I made about a million gazzillion of these little birdies:
