We are living through a difficult time for humanity but with fear and loss has also come community and so much love.
We are so honoured to announce that Catherine Hart, a milliner with 20 plus years experience and who is situated above our Darlington store has changed her craft, as many others have, to suit these desperate times. She has been making basic yet vital protective garments for doctors and nurses for our local hospitals. She currently makes 5 a day consistently making it an average of 40 per week! Many have already gone out to James Cook Hospital, but the demand for more is high.
So we ask you to take part in our campaign and get sewing, every single garment counts! We are accepting fabric donations, each garment takes around 3 Meters of fabric. Yet any donations of the following would be absolutely fantastic
- Poly Cotton
- 1/2 Inch Elastic
You can donate money by following the link below to help us be able to fund and buy these supplies as we currently are running out of everything we have between us and we hope you can appreciate the cost can get heavy quickly! www.justgiving(REMEBER TO ADD LINK)
Connect with local seamstresses and ask if they would like to get involved in our campaign and help raise money for your local seamstresses and let's bring back the old aged talent of sewing!
What you can make
- Tie Gowns
- Hair Nets
Let's get creative whilst many of us have spare time and start doing something amazing!
To get some information about this either email firstname.lastname@example.org or DM our Instagram or Facebook.
Just before you leave, it would be great if now you could post this blog to any groups or pages you currently have asking people to come on board, connect and help protect our precious NHS staff.
Much love to all of you Amber & Catherine xxx
