All hands on deck, can you help The Sewing Collective?

This last week The Sewing Collective has had a flurry of requests for scrubs. This incredible community of over 1,000 Sewers across Bath and North East Somerset has already donated over 10,000 items to those in need. In order to avoid undercutting commercial suppliers they are maintaining a strict policy to only provide scrubs made predominantly of thrifted fabric and for requests that meet one of these criteria:

  1. Registered charity

  2. Unable to afford purchased scrubs

  3. Where custom made scrubs fulfil a charitable need that purchased scrubs could not

They have been able to refer a number of requests to suppliers, but have still totted up 163 pairs for our to do list for care facilities in need. They are calling for all hands on deck to help with some sewing.
