Volunteer Work

File 2017-05-11, 4 08 56 PMTime to do something good for the community

So off to sewing placemats and two pillows. Several of our Special Needs Adult kids are volunteering their time at a Retirement Home in Aurora.

So I thought since I can’t help on sight, I could help out too and sew up some stuff for them to sell at the TuckShop….Lots of great fabric was donated for me to use. Thanks You !

Hopefull the TuckShop will have fun selling them too. More will come soon too….Though I hope this is a good start for now. Enjoy

With this TuckShop our Special Need Adult Volunteers learn so many great things…counting money, selling items, manage to be with others, teamwork, communicating with customers, listening to others….the list goes on and not to forget having  some fun too.

Hubby and I learned how to thread it one evening last week.   Really much easier than I thought! We looked at a YouTube videos. I get it now, Yehhh !!! Off I go….

So today I figured out how to do the “Rolled Hem” it creates a beautiful edge for Napkins and much more. Now I just need more Ideas what to sew up next???

Etwas neues gibt es bei mir Zuhause….”Bernina Serger 800 DL” und Servietten, viel Spaß hatte ich bereits schon heute Morgen.

Mein Mann und ich lernten zusammen, wie sie (Serger) eingefädelt wird.  Wirklich viel einfacher als ich dachte,  wir schauten es nach bei einem  YouTube Video.  Ich verstehe es jetzt, Yuhui!!! Los gehts….

So heute Morgen ging es los mit dem   “Rollsaum” schaut Euch die Servietten an die entstanden sind ….Toll was man so alles Nähen kann und so schnell…..Nun brauche ich nur Ideen was ich naechsten Machen kÖnnte???

Making A Difference

2015-09-10 17.08.21Glad I am here to make a difference

I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night…..all through my day I truly try my very best to make a difference in some once life. I know this is not always easy or noticed by others. I get it.

But here is a little story of “my rewards” to my day yesterday at work.

An elderly lady came to the store where I work. I had never seen her before. But she ask if someone could help her. I ask if she could tell me more. On she went on telling me she learned all on her own how to do “Cables”  but this had been a while ago and she was not sure anymore if she was doing it correct.

Ahhh a knitting question, Great I knew I could help her. So she showed me the project she started. It was perfect!!! She can still do the cables….She was so happy to hear that.

She thought she now had to buy some yarn from us now because I helped her.

Her and her husband really like the colour  “Gray” and she wanted to knit him a scarf but unfortunately do to the sale we have had only 3 skeins of a gray yarn left but not in the weight she was looking for.  Gray always goes the first with naturals, white and blacks.

She was soooo upset and ask if I would be mad with her if she would not buy any yarn this time? But she for sure will be back to buy from (me) the store again. How could I tell he I was mad with her. Never in a million years would I have told her that! As I really only want to help her no matter if she bought yarn from us or not!

She gave me this great big hug and told me she will be back!

My believes are

“If you give a little Help, Care, and Understanding you get sooo much more in return back”

maybe not right away but customers like that will remember You “Me”    

“I know I make a Difference”

And You can too.
