#up­cy­cle project boosts team spirit

Talk of the Town - - News -

MANY years ago women and chil­dren sewed to­gether as they shared their skills and pas­sions with each other.

This “old-fash­ioned” sup­port seems to be lack­ing in to­day’s so­ci­ety where many moth­ers feel iso­lated. Young peo­ple of both gen­ders want­ing to learn how to sew/knit etc, are lim­ited by what their par­ents are able to teach them and, of course, time is a chal­lenge for most par­ents.

#up­cy­cle Port Al­fred op­er­ates on an old­fash­ioned sys­tem. No money is charged for lessons –it runs on “faith”. If you are look­ing for a place to col­lab­o­rate once a week or, if you would like to do­nate your time to teach­ing oth­ers or if you have old but­tons/thread/ fab­rics/paints (even sew­ing machines) and you would like to do­nate to the project, please
