A sewing workshop encouraging repair, up-cycling and remodelling of used clothes, looking to break our habit to always buy new. Fix holes in jeans, darn jumpers, shorten sleeves or create a new outfit from something already in the wardrobe. Bring along an item of clothing to repair or re-work into something new. Or practice basic techniques on the examples provided. Help will be given with ideas and basic sewing knowledge. Suitable for beginner sewers who need some help or more experienced sewers looking for a dedicated space and time to sew. We are a friendly and collaborative group, be prepared to share ideas and help others.
A free, regular workshop takes place on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, 6:30 to 8:30pm. Find us at The Create Place, 29 Old Ford Road, London E2 9PJ. Find a list of dates here. All equipment provided including a small amount of fabric and trims. The workshop is facilitated by Eleanor & Sarah. Email us at
