Two 13 year old, big hearted friends have started their own business to raise money for charities close to their hearts. Anna Watson and Emily Wilson started ‘Sew Kind’ to help fundraise while spending time together sewing. The 2 girls were both inspired by their Grannies to start sewing at a very young age. Both attended fashion class where they would make and create together and have been going since the age of 8. They now sew whenever they are together, the sewing machines go wherever they go.
Anna, from Lochwinnoch and pupil at St Columba’s in Kilmacolm and Emily, from Quarriers and pupil at Port Glasgow High get together with their sewing machines to make lots of little items to sell at their events. They aim to make gifts that cut back on plastic and are reusable. They have both worked incredibly hard to make as many items as they possible can. They will be selling at their stall at Kilmacolm Primary Spirit of Xmas event and St Columba’s Xmas Fayre.
This year they will be raising money for The Beatson Cancer Charity. Last year Anna’s mum went through chemotherapy and radiotherapy for breast cancer at The Beatson. This is the girls way of thanking the Beatson for making her better. They hope the money will go towards helping other families going through what they did last year.
