Kids love to sew. That’s just a fact. I’ve witnessed this again and again over 20 years of holding hand sewing classes and workshops for children. And to get people, (mums, I’m thinking especially of you), to realise that they can sew all sorts of amazing really simple really creative projects with their children, I am hereby declaring July 16, 2016 the inaugural World Sew-a-Softie Day.
From the beginning of July 2016 people all over the world will be running simple hand sewing softie-making workshops or posting softie tutorials online. And hopefully some people will just make a hand sewn softie with their kids and post the results online. So far I have people participating from England, Ireland, the USA, Israel, and of course, here on my home turf in Australia. If you’d like to join us you can contact me or join the Sew-a-Softie Day Facebook group.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Trixi
