"I came to classes at Stitches in time for 5 years, and have been working in the charity for 10 years now.  I am one of the main manufacturers for FabricWorks...I feel so happy and proud to make things for so many paople.   The money I have earned means I am able to support my family."

Stitches in Time making Quilt Pocket for THE REGULAR works

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'.


"I look forward to coming in and feel like a really valued part of a team. It feels like a
like a home, and I feel part of something, and important"
- FabricWorks participant

Quilt Pocket bag in Calico cotton from fashion sustainable brand THE REGULAR works
We've worked with Stitches in Time on quite a few projects now but this little pocket bag has to be our favourite.  Perfectly proportioned it's our new go-to bag from dog walks to festivals and all the summer days inbetween.  The mini size of our pocket also means we get to use up all the odds and ends from our larger production runs so that nothing goes to waste.  Currently available in un-bleached 100% cotton.  More colours and styles coming soon..watch this space.
