|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until 14th August 2019

This remake sewing session is funded through Greening Gorebridge, a Climate Challenge Fund project from Keep Scotland Beautiful.

To Book: email jaimie.macdonald@gorebridge.org.uk to ensure there space for you on your chosen date and time.

This is not a taught sewing class. It is a chance to have free access our community Sewing studio to make, upcycle, embellish and repair with textiles. Fabric cutting space is limited so small to medium sized projects preferred.

We have:

  • 4-5 sewing machines available to use or bring your own if you already have one.
  • Free donated materials for your upcycling projects.
  • Thread, needles, pins and other basic equipment will be accessible during the session.

Bring a textile project you need some expert guidance with, or get on with your own project.

  • REPAIR – mend those pesky holes and rips to make them wearable again.
  • ALTER – take up hems, take clothes in or out to fit better
  • EMBELLISH and REFASHION – Decorate and change items to feel more fun, more colourful and more like YOU.
  • MAKE- work on your own sewing projects. We encourage you to use donated fabric, reuse and upcycle wherever possible.
