SueSew has it all sewn up with gowns for the NHS

SueSew has it all sewn up with gowns for the NHS

Sue and her team from SueSew at Rugby Central are busy making gowns to help local NHS frontline staff during the Covid-19 pandemic. Using a mix of their own plain and colourful fabrics, SueSew are sending the completed gowns to Rugby Scrubbers who are, in turn, working with the Warwickshire Scrubbers community initiative.

In addition to the gowns, the team has knitted headbands with buttons to hold facemasks in place, and are working on hats and blankets for the children's departments in local hospitals.
