An acquired brain injury, like a stroke or traumatic injury can impact any of us at any time. These injuries often cause symptoms like seizure, verbal impairment and physical disability and can affect everything from our decision-making and memory tasks to our organisational skills and behaviour.
This month’s feature charity is Headway ADP, whose specialised services help people with an acquired brain injury redevelop the skills and functions they need to reintegrate into the community. During May you can help brighten up their cooking class activities with these fun aprons for clients to use.
SENDING IN YOUR DONATIONS
Send your completed aprons into Headway ADP’s head office. Be sure to include your name, postal address and contact details with your donation.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO CREATE THE PROJECT?
The Headway ADP sewalong will run from 1–31 May, 2018.
We’ll be giving away a number of prizes throughout in the year. To enter, simply take a photo of your finished project this month and post it to our Echidna Sewing facebook community!
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing and embroidery this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
If you have your own sewing/embroidery blog you can save the following badges and post it on your blog entry, linking back to this page.
