Sewing ma­chines needed to help de­liver new pro­ject

The Oban Times - - Districts -

A LOCHABER group is ap­peal­ing for sewing ma­chines to help de­liver a new pro­ject to young adults.

Stu­dio 2 on Fort Wil­liam High Street plans to run ba­sic sewing work­shops for peo­ple who can’t sew.

Times have yet to be con­firmed, but the group hopes to run the two- hour classes for four weeks.

Bron­wyn Stra­chan from Stu­dio 2 told the Lochaber Times: ‘You don’t hear of too many young peo­ple sewing th­ese days but you know what it’s like when you want to put on a pair of jeans but the zip is bro­ken. If the jeans haven’t cost that much, you might throw them out but if you can fix them it gives the jeans a new lease of life.’

To help the pro­ject go ahead, Stu­dio 2 is look­ing for sewing ma­chines.

Bron­wyn added: ‘Peo­ple may have sewing ma­chines sit­ting gath­er­ing dust and if they are happy to do­nate them to Stu­dio 2 that would be great. If they are will­ing to let us use their ma­chine dur­ing the pro­ject we would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate that as well. Two peo­ple have al­ready done this.’
