Photos are the latest batches totalling 38 bags made up by Judy, Mary and myself as part of our effort to assist the group Northeast England Sewing for the Front Line.
These are just the latest batches; many more have gone before from various Riding Mill sewers. We now have plenty of fabric – thank you to all who donated. We have sufficient for our needs for now so do not need any more at the present time.
However as we are now moving away from bags towards scrubs and isolation gowns (pictured) if anyone has spare bias binding or Velcro we will gladly take those off your hands.
It is very gratifying to be a small part of a monumental effort to help out our hospitals, primary healthcare centres & care homes. The outpouring from sewists all over the north east is awesome!
If you can sew gowns (which are dead easy if you can dressmake) or scrubs, we would love to hear from you.
If you can’t sew but can cut out fabric to a pattern, or can zig-zag edges so they don’t fray, that would save a lot of time for the sewers. Janet
