sewing project at Miraa House

The Miraa House ladies are making great use of the sewing equipment provided by the Zonta Club of Brisbane City Heart.  We were thrilled to receive a sewing machine, adjustable table and a sewing cupboard.

Our ladies would have struggled with a normal sewing machine that has a foot peddle, however the sewing machine that we received has a start/stop button – this has been extremely helpful.

The table is adjustable which means we can adjust the height to suit all the ladies.

The storage cupboard has been put to good use to store all the cotton reels, material and for using the top as a cutting/work area.

The ladies are currently making long cushions that will be used in the yoga classes.

The sewing program has proven to be very popular and we are seeing great results.

Thank you to the Zonta Club of Brisbane City Heart for making this possible.
