Description

Join Meagan for a guided sewing session making items for bushfire impacted animals. Students will be assisted with making joey pouches, kangaroo hanging bags and bat wraps.

IF THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO AVAILABLE SESSIONS:

For self-guided sewing enthusiasts, you can use our machines & equipment during our Open Studio Hours - click here for times.

Thread Den has all the equipment necessary and threads. 

We do not have enough appropriate fabrics (please bring fabrics). Appropriate fabrics are 100% natural fibres, no synthetics or polyesters, no glitter or metallic prints. Breathability and softness is essential. Consider going through your linen cupboard for old natural fibre sheets. 

Liners should be 100% natural fibres: cotton, bamboo, linen – blends and styles of these are OK but no polyester, synthetics or fabrics that have plastic or glitter. Any print is fine! Breathability and softness are the priority: think about what you would put next to a baby’s bare skin. Wool cannot be used for a pouch liner.

15 January 2020 • Sewing for Bushfire Impacted Animals

So wonderful to be part of a large group working in production line fashion to produce as many pouches as we could. I reckon at least 60 pouches were made and nearly as many again yet to be finished off. And it was so much fun to be part of a social group working towards one end. Thank you Thread Den, for helping the bushfire wildlife. It was gratifying to see that so many people want to contribute in some way.
