What a fabulous speaker! Vintage Vision, a social enterprise consisting of both selling donated vintage clothing and teaching women sewing skills came to tell us about thier journey from idea to establishment. Now with 2 shops, and a hope for a group of women to feel the need for another in Cardiff, and a "pop up" at the Hay festival, Vintage Vision truely inspired all the ladies at our meeting last week.
Amanda talked enthusiastically almost without pausing for breath & despite the heat in the hall, our ladies would have listened for another hour or more! Then out came some of the donated clothing and the members listened to the stories that each piece held, whilst getting the opportunity to pass some round, and later to try on a few pieces. See our gallery for these images.
If anyone is interested in setting up a Vintage Vision in Cardiff, I am sure Amanda would be thrilled to hear from you - several ladies at the meeting have already expressed interest in volunteering.
I'm Becki - Vice President of the group and willing volunteer to coordinate the website and social networking! Enjoy the Blog!
