Part of my process of cleaning and re-organizing my sewing room is keeping up with mending. I also believe that we have a responsibility to try and keep our clothing in repair and not just throw them out. For example it takes 2000 gallons of water to produce one pair of jeans and many of those found today are not of good quality.
And now for a little something different. Unlike most other posts on this blog, this one is fictional, and speculative, more for your entertainment than actual documentation of anything. If that’s not your cup of tea, please brew the next cup. In the meanwhile, please allow me to share a little quiche of my hobbies of running, writing, blogging, and sewing. 🙂
I’m not sure how many of our Guild members made New Year resolutions regarding the making of COVID cloth face masks. However, many members made some 4300 face masks in total for the Northwood Seniors Home, Halifax campus! This was in the early days of the pandemic in 2020, when the facility put out a call for such masks during times when PPEs were in short supply. For this, Lisa Roberts, Member of the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia representing Halifax Needham within which Northwood is located, made a Resolution (#453) for the Guild on April 13th, 2021!
