None of what we do is possible without our fantastic team of Fairies. Every contribution no matter what size is hugely appreciated and makes a real difference to a child in hospital.
Whether you are a beginner seamstress or a seasoned professional – you can definitely sew up a set. The patterns are easy to follow and are a great stress-free project. There are step-by-step tutorials and videos to help you and there is always a friendly Fairy on hand to answer any queries.
The Fairies are the most critical part of our charity. As well as sewing garments our Fairies often organise local fundraising activities, anything from school fetes to cake sales to running marathons. If they wish, Fairies can choose to attend events at local hospitals to publicise our services and where possible deliver orders in person to their local hospitals;
I only wish that every single one of you had been with me when I delivered our garments to my local hospital this morning. I was privileged to meet staff, patients and parents and the response was overwhelming. Staff had tears in their eyes when they saw YOUR beautiful garments. This charity IS the best, run by a fab admin team but please remember it would be nothing without YOU.
Becoming a Fairy is not just about sewing. The Fairy community provides friendship and support in all sorts of areas to everybody who is generous enough to dedicate their free-time to helping Pyjama Fairies. Please come and join us!
So… how do I get started?
Becoming a fairy is a commitment, you will need to provide your own fabrics and notions and sew to set deadlines. Although fabric is provided whenever charity funds allow.
Before you can sew your first order you will need to make some sample garments to gain your ‘Wings’ and become a fully fledged Fairy. Find out how to get your Wings.
Request to join our Fairies only Facebook Page. This is the place where all Fairies come together to discuss sewing matters and share information.
