Local Craft Enterprise Invites Mothers to Craft as their Babies Sleep

“Made and Making”, a new craft enterprise set up by local woman Sarah Brangwyn, launches its innovative ‘Babes in Arms’ workshops designed to encourage Mothers to create and craft as their babies play or sleep.

The sessions, to take place at the local Guide Hut in Hassocks, will see Sarah passing on her creative skills as the group creates cushion covers, Christmas stockings and more.

Made and Making helps people make the most of what they already have by giving them the crafting skills to re-use, recycle and upcycle what is around them. During these sessions Mothers are encouraged to bring outgrown cherished clothes to craft into memory cushions making beautiful keepsakes or gifts.

It is Sarah’s intention to create a sociable workshop environment where these skills can be learned and shared by the local community, beginning with local Mothers who, while meeting other Mums, will be able to pursue something for themselves.

According to Sarah: “Everyone has their own eye for style regardless of whether they can sew of craft.  These workshops will give Mothers a welcome opportunity to learn and swap skills while creating something of their own – all while their baby plays or sleeps.  It can be tough looking after a young baby; I hope I can provide a refreshing break for some tired Mums!”

Sarah is now offering a range of courses for all ages and abilities, including children.  For more information, please go to www.madeandmaking.com or contact Sarah on 07967819540 or at sarah@madeandmaking.com.
