Buttons and Bows Workshop

Ladies of Buttons and Bows have been enjoying a well deserved rest through the summer.

Our monthly workshop will be recommencing on Tuesday 1st October at 1.30 until 3.30 at the Memorial Hall, Slyne-with-Hest and every first Tuesday afternoon in the month.

Anyone wishing to come along and see what we do will be made welcome.
If it has been a long time since you have knit, sewn or even crocheted, there are ladies who would take pleasure in helping you. We make simple squares that are then sewn into blankets when complete they are sent to Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital Ethiopia.

I think most types of children’s clothing has been made over the past nine years. Everyone is encouraged to make things of their choice. The ladies enjoy sharing their ideas and patterns. They inspire us all.

Beautiful children’s clothing from birth to age 14yrs are generously gifted to the group.

We take great delight and joy in sending these gifts to needy children in Malawi, Uganda, Gambia, Romania, Cech Rep, Poland, Ukraine, Albanian and locally to children’s wards and where a need has been made known to us.

We like to make sure that all the gift made with love and care are sent to charities that we know and trust.

This Autumn three ladies from our group are going to Romania and Moldova and will be taking clothes and toys, meeting the team in Moldova. We have not partnered with Moldova before so this will be a wonderful opportunity.

Come along and spend an afternoon with us and get creative.
