Why SHE founded this group

I have experienced isolation and trauma within my own life. I managed to get out of it by being with other women, doing various forms of therapy, sharing stories and memories.

My passion in sewing has also played a big role in doing this as a therapy with sewing, crochet and knitting. Which are a source of therapy and an excellent activity to support mental health and longterm wellbeing.

I would like to continue to give support to my community and provide people with a positive, successful, warm and welcoming experience.

Together we can keep building our beautiful community and get rewarding
