Classes and talks on sewing, textile waste and eco-ness.
LOCKDOWN UPDATE:
Until further notice, all our events are online.

ONLINE WORKSHOPS

The Fabric Swatch operates as a physical space however it’s more important to keep you safe, so we will not have any offline classes, volunteer sessions or fabric swap events. If you have a sewing machine at home, now is the perfect time to spend time with it. We have moved our classes online and have simple projects for you to work on using small pieces of textiles.

Re-use fabric

We save textile fabric by redistributing good quality un-used fabric to local sewing centres, new businesses and hobbyists - the aim is to see less fabrics in landfills.

Help out

Take out time to sort through our textile collection and leave with a bag for your next project. Find out more about where you can lend us a hand.
