Last night we were invited to Temasek Polytechnic to share a little about Granny Quilts. It was great to see Terence,Yvonne, Mary and three of the "aunties" from Chinatown again after being away in Houston. Terence spoke about Silver Co-operative and engaging the elderly as an untapped workforce in Singapore.
He had also asked me to speak about my experiences working in Chinatown. I am not an overly confident speaker but I think it went ok. Yvonne also shared about the digital imaging solution that they are doing (RxP) Then one of the aunties came up to speak and she was fantastic! She is such a natural speaker and her enthusiasm was great!
After the lecture we had a lot of people come up and to see the baby quilts and the art quilts that the ladies had made. We even sold one of the quilts on the spot and may get orders for some more!
It was a great evening to share what we are doing in Chinatown and am looking forward to seeing some of our other art quilts being given away at a presentation tonight.
