Mother of 5, I have spent the past 20+ years running a variety of homespun ventures around my children. Post-covid the favourite part of my job came to holt, and I am trying to move into pastures new. Pre-covid my afternoons were spent sewing with children in schools. Not only did they enjoy learning a new skill, it helped them unwind and relax after a long day at school, requiring no screen time, or wifi codes!
Since I can no longer visit schools, I have realized I can still reach out to the children - in fact I can reach out further by launching on-line tutorials which can teach and support more children who want to sew, whilst remaining in their safe bubbles.
Where you come into this...
In order to do this I need your help. I am looking to raise £4k to help with personal development courses and equipment. Soooo, I am offering rewards for your kind donations in the form of homemade gifts/tutorials - Christmas gifts for your friends/family members who have everything, BUT NOT THESE...YET.
Heat pack, gift wrapped and delivered
Heat packs are great little gems for everyone. Whether you have an injury that needs soothing, or you just want to curl up on the sofa to watch your favourite movie, you will never want to be without one of these again. Heat in the microwave and feel your mood lift with the lavender scent (can be unscented). Be sure not to lend to a friend/family member because this won't be coming back!! Available in 2 sizes - long: 20x6inches; Square: 10x10inch. Unless specified these gifts will automatically come with lavender in them. This reward is only available in the UK due to postage and packaging costs
FREE MOTION EMBROIDERY PICTURES
These pictures are all hand sewn and come with a selection of phrases to suit those who want something a little different. From cat ladies to bag ladies, these quirky pictures will have you in 'stitches' and add charm to your home. I'm offering 10 different pictures, all seen below.
Rudolph wreath. A new take on the old wall stag, this handstitched reindeer wreath adds charm to any 'homemade' Christmas theme. Buy ready made if you are lacking time to make it. This is only available to UK pledgers due to cost of postage.
Sew a reindeer wreath online tutorial and support
Access to my personal 'Sew a reindeer wreath tutorial' and online support. This is a pre-Christmas/Advent gift which offers the receiver the chance to make a reindeer wreath with full online tuition and support. (Contents for the wreath are not provided). This is a great option for those who have a little time on their hands and would like to have a go! Along with the pattern and tutorial video, I will be offering 4 zoom sessions to give support and see the final products.
Sew a sloth tutorial Everyone's favourite - children will love making this sloth and personalising it. Suitable for children and adults 8+. Materials not provided, however a full list of where to find supplies will be. As with the reindeer wreath tutorial I provide pattern, instructions, video tutorial and 4 zoom sessions to help support and finish the project.
I'm excited to share these projects and gifts with you, and look forward to being busy once again doing what I love for those I love. Please support me in this effort. If you are already organised for Christmas (well done!), all I ask is you share this with your friends and family and any who may still need help with seasonal planning and a few new ideas too!!
NB The label you will see on some of my products is the name of my old venture (good to remember your roots!). The web link no longer works, however a new one will be coming soon. I love the the name SoRosie and feel it adds a lovely finishing touch. I hope you will agree.
