One of Wamuran Park Home’s lovely long term lady residents had torn her favourite dress! Barbara was most upset at the thought of throwing it away, so our lifestyle carer Helen suggested they try to sew it back together so Barbara could wear it now the weather is warmer and her dress a cool one she is fond of.
Barbara was excited to try something new and was in luck as Wamuran Park Home has its own sewing machine for leisure activities. They set up the machine and off they went! It was a bit tricky at first but after a little while Barbara had successfully sewn the hole up and was overjoyed with her work and the thought of being able to keep her favourite dress. Now she is looking for more things to sew!
