We are proud to, once again, be collaborating with 'Stitches in Time' who have made this very special, first drop of 'Quilt Pockets' for us.
Based in East London 'Stitches in Time' began with a simple experiment to see if sewing could start conversations between strangers. Over the years it has grown and through using creative projects as a starting point it has been able to support culturally diverse groups, some facing disadvantage and marginalisation, including elders, migrant women, children living in poverty.
Fabric Works is the training, production and social enterprise arm of Stitches in Time. It offers women, who have an interest in sewing, but with little or no work experience, a safe space to learn new skills. Here they are able to gain confidence in a supportive and empowering environment and take on work which is paid at the 'London Living Wage'.
