1. I’ve been offline for a while and not blogging, firstly my laptop broke and took a while to get fixed, then I moved house over Christmas…smart idea!  But now I’m settled in my new place and back to blogging!

    Today I went to Manchester for a day out and went to Manchester suburb, Chorlton for Stitched Up’s new HQ opening day!  

    I met the lovely folks of Stitched Up at Just So festival last summer (we were running workshops along side each other) and loved their ethos.  They’re a collective of eco-minded stitchers who want to promote sustainable fashion to a wider audience.  In their own words:

    Our name reflects the way we feel the fashion industry treats us, its workers and its shoppers.

    Our workshops, clothes swaps and events encourage people to upcycle, create and stitch - empowering,enlightening and engaging people of all ages and backgrounds.”

    In their new HQ they have sewing machines you can rent out by the hour if you don’t have access to your own (and if you want some experienced seamstresses about to advise you if you’re new to it!).  They also run loads of workshops, sewing machine driving tests, crafternoons, up-cycling workshops and loads more as well as selling a range of carefully chosen up-cycled clothes, handmade goods and fabrics.  Definitely worth a visit and keeping an eye on.
