Thursday 31 March 2022: Byrd or Yogabyrdsews is a new sewists and part of the SewOver50 community.
Byrd watched her mother contribute to the community through the PTA, through school activities, in political activities and even until her passing, she would collect bread for nursing homes.
Byrd has worked in social services and now in retirement she uses her sewing to help her sorority assist a school and nursing homes by sewing customised bags for residents on as a birthday gift.
In retirement, Byrd contributes to the whole community and not just through her sewing.
Remember that Byrd has been sewing for less than 2 years. She was terrified of sewing patterns so she drafted her own pyjama pattern and made them for everyone in her household.
