Volunteer sewing supervisor for my elderly neighbor for and hour a week

Marie from Parkvale

Hi all. I have an elderly neighbour who loves sewing but doesn't feel confident doing it by herself. I'm not a sewer (even for her basic tops and PJ's etc that she loves to make). But I have a large dining table and a sewing machine. Is there anyone who can spare an hour a week to … View moreHi all. I have an elderly neighbour who loves sewing but doesn't feel confident doing it by herself. I'm not a sewer (even for her basic tops and PJ's etc that she loves to make). But I have a large dining table and a sewing machine. Is there anyone who can spare an hour a week to come and have a cuppa and bring your laptop and potter while keeping one eye on my elderly neighbour? During school term she attends the women's centre for sewing on Weds mornings but misses it heaps during the holidays and doesn't have family close. So I'd love to help her out if anyone can spare an hour a week. Maree

Dear Friends and Neighbours,
Christmas Day has come and gone and the New Year is on it's way.
I sincerely hope that you all found some love and light even if it was in some small way yesterday and that you have hope and a goal for the coming week and the fresh new year.
I read this today and would like to share it with you.

Inner Beauty is Everything
People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in; their true beauty is revealed
only if there light is from within.
By Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Take care Friends.
With kind and warm regards

PS. I am on Duty now and over the new year if anyone is in the sad place of needing a dedicated and committed Funeral Celebrant.
