How exciting it is when we receive a phone call from the local Rotary rep. letting us know the container will be unloaded. Samuel and Bevan (a visitor) raced off to be there as the first boxes were removed. Guess whose gear was right there at the door? That's right, so for the first time it only took an hour and they were back with a fully loaded Suzuki.
We received another half dozen machines, which we actually hope to share out to other organisations as we have enough in our sewing room at present. Samuel was approached at the container by a woman who requested a machine or two. We hope she will be able to come and pick some up sometime.
We also received some boxes filled with fabric, flannelette even a bunch of pre cut and hemmed flannelette inserts!! Wonderful! As Samuel had the afternoon free(ish) he set up some plywood and cut some pieces with Bevans help, and then left Bevan to finish screwing them together. He did a fine job and the 4 shelves looked huge!
We now have floor space! Can you see it there? And the fabric is easy to access as opposed to rummaging through cardboard boxes. Two shelves have clothing neatly folded, one shelf has flannelette inserts for nappies and pads. And so many other shelves…. Don't you just love storage?
Many many thanks to Bevan and Samuel for giving their time to build these wonderful assets for Bellekria.
On a side note, when I went to take this picture they were busy measuring up a young girl and drafting a robe for a church ritual. I think its a freebie which is fine with me.
They are getting really good at drafting and designing.
