A project by Fei Yue Community Services – Retirees Centre @ Choa Chu Kang
Fei Yue Retirees Centre @ Choa Chu Kang (RC CCK) started a sewing interest group – sewNjoy in 2017 to attract seniors who love to sew. The idea is to delay frailty and prevent social isolation. And as the months went by, we saw many seniors produce beautiful handmade products.
Instructor of sewNjoy project, Mdm Lam Ah Moey, 71, remarked, “sewing has helped them (the seniors) to strengthen their fine motor skills and improve flexibility in their joints, it also brings about the improvement of their eye-hand coordination”.
Mdm Poo Ru Ail, 73, a participant of sewNjoy, said, “The confidence, the sense of accomplishment and finding meaning in life (when the products get sold) at this age, is unspeakable. I have also made many new friends and got a lot of support from the others during this time”.
