Do you have a couple of hours you can offer at our focus group next week  with ‘Daylight Lamps’?

FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK, Monday 23rd – Sunday 29th April

Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. The movement wants to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.

At Fabrications these are values we also feel strongly about and thought this year we would offer some special activities to coincide with Fashion Revolution week to raise awareness and inspire #Haulternatives.

Thursday 26th April, 6.30 – 9.30pm ‘Eco Sewing Party’

Join us for a creative sewcial with the ethical fabric company ‘Offset Warehouse’ (we have a selection of their beautiful sustainable cloths at Fabrications) and our special sewing guests of honour Tree (Stitchless TV) & Lydia Higginson (Made My Wardrobe)

An evening to network, sew along & learn new tips with our special guests. The focus will be around working with jersey / stretch materials. We are also planning a free prize draw for attendees & some lovely refreshments. Tickets are £5 & selling fast! (and redeemable against purchase of cloth on the night) Every attendee will also be entered into a free prize draw on the night (prizes to be announced!)

Saturday 28th April, 11am – 8.30pm ‘Fabrications Fashion Hackathon’

Fabrications studio (The Imaginerium) will be transformed into a sustainable sewing factory, where your old, unloved clothes undergo some reconstructive surgery and receive a new lease of life or a creative makeover!
