Hear from our crafters
I live with my aged grandmother and aunt. Crafting brings me happieness especially when I assemble and write positive words for the craft. It has also helped me achieved mental wellness and recovery. I hope crafting can help me integrate back into society and others can see me beyond my disabilities.

I'm 70+ years old and live alone in a rental flat. When I am alone, I think of my late husband and worry about my mother who is in the nursing home. I am so happy that I can put my sewing talents to good use. I get to earn passive income and sewing help me get over the Covid-19 pandemic and emotional hurdles by keeping me engaged."

Aunty Susan was called home to the lord after a long battle against lung cancer. Crafting has empowered her to relive a fulfilling lifestyle and distracted her from the side effects. It has also helped her to bond with her husband. Uncle Teo will continue her work and legacy in her memory.

The crafting sessions have helped the residents stay engaged and strengthen their fine motor skills. The residents are always looking forward to the next crafting session as it is a new and energising experience.
