Still sewing strong at 90
Our Make it and Mend it Heroine of the Day today is an old lady, Ida Mulert, from Iowa in the USA. At 90 she is still sewing and mending, a hobby she has enjoyed for the past 80 years.
Ida made clothing for her ten children as they grew up and now she continues to make for grandchildren and friends - every new grandchild receives a homemade quilt. Ida still does the mending for her family and helps out with mending and sewing as a volunteer in a residential home.
We'd love to hear about other old people who are still "making it and mending it". Post us your stories and pictures - below or to email@example.com
