Sewing Patterns and General Information
We have many members who are keen stitchers and there is a need for a whole range of sewn items for our charities. The International Aid Trust are very grateful for all the knitted items for children and adults which are generally for the top half but there is generally a lack of garments for the bottom half! So there is a terrific need for dresses, skirts, shorts and trousers particularly for children.
All our central resource areas have sets of commercial sewing patterns which can be ordered by groups so they have their own. We are also in the process of developing a file of sewing patterns that can be copied for individual groups who want them. It is possible to download some of these patterns - see section below.
Each centre has some donated fabric available for members and a range of buttons zips and trimmings. We always welcome donations of spare fabric or other bits and pieces as members can make good use of them.
At different times we run sewing classes and workshops both for beginners and for more advanced stitchers in the different areas - do ask if you are interested. Sheringham, Dereham and Norwich have a limited number of sewing machines for this purpose.
