The sewing bee is made up of club members who have an interest and some skiils in a variety of crafts including knitting and sewing. It usually meets on the first Tuesday of each month at the home of the current organiser Krystyna.
Since starting the sewing bee has made syringe driver bags for the local hospice, knee rugs and blankets for the local care of the elderly ward at Queen Margaret Hospital, tiddlemuffs for people with dementia. We have also recently been knitting purple hippos for use with Dementia Friends Training in Fife schools. The children in P6 and P7 who complete the training are given a hippo along with their pin and certificate. We have also donated sewing machines and knitted items to React a local charity which supports refugees on the island of Samos in Greece.
The group are currently making face masks which will be given to Frontline Fife a local charity we support which works with homeless people in Fife.
