This is a photo study of a great little multicultural sewing group run by Kildonan Uniting Care in Shepparton. I invite you to take a little journey with us from the sewing room in Shepparton, to a bus trip to Sydney Rd in Melbourne to buy material and then an exhibition.
“Women start from nothing and even how to use sewing machine and they have been doing that now for 8 months and now they are starting to make dress for themselves and their kids. I believe with the sewing machine that they have more confidence when they are making something by themselves” Fatima Al-Qarakchy
On Friday October 3rd an exhibition of sewing creations and photographs was held in Shepparton.
The photographs below were taken by Photography by Jamile (as I was sadly not able to be in attendance that day)
