Stitched Up is a sewing group for teenagers (Yr 7-12) to learn to sew absolutely anything! We meet 3.30 to 5.30pm every Monday (during the school term) in the Bellingen Uniting Church Hall. We start with a yummy home baked afternoon tea to share with our stories of the day. With the help of our generous volunteers we have made amazing quilts; incredible hand embroidered objects; up-cycled clothing; primary and high school uniforms; bags of all shapes and sizes; patchwork cushions; pencil cases; Ballet outfits – even tutus; Dr Who objects; adjusted op shops clothes for formals; greeting cards, jewellery; made fabric baby toys and so much more. The list of achievements is only limited by our imagination.
Once a semester we have a “high tea” where the girls cook and at 5.30pm their families arrive and the girls serve them food and tea. It is a chance for the girls to thank the ladies who volunteer and the ladies to thank the girls for their enthusiastic inspiration!
We have been running since 2008 and thanks to the generosity of the Bellingen Uniting Church, Rotary, CWA and our amazing community, it is completely free! We have sewing machines, a huge amount of fabric, notions and accessories to make anything. Why not come along and discover the joy of being creative. You don’t have to bring anything!
