–Launching in August 2020–
GrowMama Homesewn host Community Sew Days in Auckland. These are catered drop-in days with experienced sewists available to teach sewing or sew custom-made garments from size-inclusive patterns- some participants will be referred by not-for-profit organisations. It’s a safe friendly space for all. Kind of like hanging out with nana or your aunties. Including the home baking and cups of tea. We will be stocking the online store with some participant’s work, with income going to them.
Our Community Sew Days are grateful to Sew Knit Love and Swimstyle Australia for permission to use their patterns to create beautiful garments.
Resources are in development for those who want to set up Community Sew Days in their area.
Donations of sewing machines, fabric and sewing supplies are gratefully accepted for teaching and to gift to people who will benefit from them.
