Last week we held a showcase night to celebrate our community at the Embroiderers' Guild NSW and to spotlight their warm, colourful and one-of-a-kind patchwork coats crafted as part of the Earn & Learn program.


 
With 56 hours of paid work lovingly poured into sewing and embellishing each coat with Australian Botanical designs inspired by our partnership with Linda Jackson AO - it was truly a night worth celebrating. It was an amazing feeling to be amongst the 19 women that participated in the program, their families and the wearable pieces of art that they had created.


 
We're so proud of what the program, with the support of the the City of Parramatta Council, has been able to bring to life while creating opportunities for meaningful employment and skills development for the two groups of women that participated.


 
But there's more - each of these unique, head-turning, winter-ready coats are priced at $745 and are now available for purchase, so if you'd love to have a wearable piece of artwork all your own, please contact us here - otherwise they'll soon be available in-store for you to see in the flesh.
