Sewing is Sarah's outlet. It’s a way to be creative, to be generous to others and to make people feel special, even people she doesn’t know!
In this episode Sarah talks about moving house again and again with all her sewing stuff and how winning ‘Champion of Machine Sewing’ at the Townsville Show last year was a defining moment. Sarah also talks about sewing with a rare eye disease and how she’s finding ways to adapt so she can keep doing what she loves.
