We are looking to recruit a team of volunteers who will support approximately eight participants to sew.

The focus of the make do and mend sessions is to reduce textile waste by teaching people basic sewing skills to mend, repair, alter and reuse fabrics into new purposes.

Projects might include making items such as bags, scarves or cushions, working on alterations and adaptations to existing clothes so they can be reused rather than disposed of or trying out new ideas for recycling fabric.

As part of this group we may look at creating items for other local charities.

Qualities and skills required:

  • Good knowledge of sewing with and without a sewing machine
  • A love of sewing with fabric
  • Ability to encourage and enable others
  • Honest, trustworthy, patient and understanding as well as creative
  • Reliable and polite

All agreed out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.

This activity takes place at The Walronds, Fore Street, Cullompton, EX15 1JL
