Event description

Description

Are you a sewing whiz? Or perhaps you've always wanted to learn how to work a sewing machine? Whatever your ability, come along and help us out! This project is a chance to use our talents to bring a smile to people who need it most. We'll have a lot of fun getting to know each other while we make beautiful incubator blankets for the Neonatal Unit, Royal Hospital Hospital in Belfast.

We'd love you to join us for a few hours of creativity as part of M&S Northern Ireland 50 years celebrations!

On the day we will hand out some pre-cut kits that we'll sew into incubator blankets.Previous machine sewing experience will be helpful, but the blankets are simple enough to be made by beginner sewists. If you're a keen learner, this project will be a really good way to learn a few basic sewing tips and tricks.

To make sure as many volunteers as possible can join the fun, we have split the day into 5 time slots, each 2 hours long. You don’t need to bring anything because sewing machines, materials and tools will be ready for you on the day. We'll give you some clear, easy to follow instructions and demonstrations so you can get the most out of your volunteering experience. How many blankets do you think you can make?!
