Sewing with Heart: STEPS Casuarina and Palmerston’s Compassionate Community

 In Adult Migrant English Program

The STEPS Casuarina and Palmerston sewing groups are crafting a meaningful impact. With four key focuses, they seamlessly blend creativity with charity.

  1. Personal creations: these skilled individuals fashion items for personal use, celebrating individuality.
  2. Mending matters: mending isn’t jus about repairs-it generates donations that sustain their resources.
  3. Stitching for good: their talents shine through charity projects, benefiting “Uniform 4 Kids” and orphaned wildlife.
  4. Spreading joy: they sew for community events, spreading harmony and appreciation.

In a relaxed space, the sewing group chat, enhancing language skills and numerical proficiency-a side benefit of sewing. The group also learn about native Australian wildlife, crafting pouches for orphaned joeys. Wildcare’s Lesley White’s annual visit brings this cause to life.

Sewing here isn’t just about fabric and thread; it’s about creating connections, nurturing skills, and making a difference that stretches far beyond their stitches.
