About the event
The idea for this new sewing event came from a group of small businesses who promote sewing sustainably. The nature of making our own clothes is a protest against the fast fashion industry. Considering where we buy our fabric and sewing supplies is the next step. Buying vintage and deadstock fabric is a sustainable alternative to buying new fabrics as we are already using items that are already in circulation. Preventing them from reaching landfill. Add to that dressmaking patterns created sustainably and eco friendly haberdashery to add that finishing touch.
The fair and talks are free, we are asking people to register their place so we get an idea of how many people are coming. It is also a way of us being able to send you more information before the day on how to get here. Feel free to get in touch if you have any specific questions.
Workshops to be booked separately at a fee. www.sewsustainablefair.co.uk
