Francesca and Frederick

Submitted by: Sarah

Materials: Polyester fibre

Mother and son (Frankie and Freddie) are flamingos that are present on all of my video calls. They were never meant to be permanent fixtures in my office (since they belong to Colette) but they’ve been on the shelf for so long now, I will miss them if they leave. I *might have to buy a second set so I can keep Frankie and Freddie and Colette can have her own toys when this is all over. Or perhaps when this is all over, I won’t rely on stuffed animals for company on my video calls?

When your side hustle becomes your full time hustle!

Submitted by: Peggy

Materials: The machine and its artist

My daughter and I started a small business recently, just before Covid 19 became a pandemic. The business that was just supposed to be a small venture has become my full time job during my layoff. I am grateful to be sewing again, I have so many great memories of my Mom sewing for our family. It is so satisfying to pass along this love to my daughter and see her creative process bloom in this shared endeavor.
