For our next meeting we will have a working bee for the BCCC (Breast Cancer Comfort Cushion) organisation. There will be a variety of jobs that we can all do, so still bring your own sewing projects and we can swap places on the “sweat shop” line! There will be a variety of jobs to do, from cutting out patterns to pinning bag straps, to machine appliqué, to over locking, to straight sewing, to ironing.
We will need some of you to bring along the following:
Sewing machines with a good appliqué/buttonhole stitch
An over locker or two
Machine thread – both plain (i.e. cream, grey & black) and variegated
Rulers and cutting mats
Irons and small bench top ironing boards
Power boards/extension cords
Anything you think I have forgotten
Paula Summerfield, who started the BCCC organisation, will be here to help us and will speak about how and why she started the charity group and how much it helps Melbourne’s and Victoria’s breast cancer sufferers.
The BCCC people have pre-cut sets of the patterns for us , however, if anyone chooses to donate any fabric for their future use, 1 ½ metres of nice cotton fabric is required for each “set”, in a cheerful novelty print or floral – the BCCC girls particularly like butterfly themed fabrics. However, any nice fabric you would use for your quilting would do fine.
