The money raised for Aquinoe from hand-made bags topped the thousand pound mark today. Tina has been designing and creating the bags for the last year and has spent a huge amount of time with scissors, thread and sewing machine.
Most of the material she uses has been donated as “end of roll” but she then has to locate suitable lining material for each bag and sometimes facings and decorations. When the amount of material has allowed, she has made two or possibly three of a similar sort, but generally the bags are unique.
The photographs show but a small sample of Tina’s handiwork.
