My name is Prue Cerin
I love making hand crafted items. What is more, I love sharing my creations with others!
At the knees of my mother, my aunts and my grandmothers, alongside my sisters, I learned to sew, knit, crochet and embroider. In my father’s shed, I learned how to plan projects and to draft, measure, cut and glue.
From each of my parents, I inherited dominant genes for social justice. I hold dear an early childhood memory of my parents welcoming Hungarian asylum seekers into our home after the Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games.
My grandchildren (who call me ‘Baba’) are now my inspiration for working to try to create a fairer, more humane, more sustainable and kinder world for them to inherit.
is a word play on the intersection of my family name with my human rights concerns. It allows me to indulge many of my passions.
I like to practice Mahatma Gandhi’s words: Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
I believe that no contribution is too small to count: If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito!
Father Bob Maguire’s words, heard in a radio interview, inspire me: We may feel that what we do is only a drop in the ocean, but we need to remember that the ocean is made up of drops.
