Sew, don't throw!

Sew don't Throw no longer meets regularly, but can be organised for a one to one session.

Whether you craft or sew, this is a space for doing your projects in company. If you have children you are invited to bring them too, provided that you supervise them. Craft and sewing skills can be shared, as can completed projects. The pictures to the left are of some of the projects that were made at Tuppenny Barn's 'Create, Reuse, Upcycle'. These have been many and various, using all sorts of recycled materials, to give them new lives as toys, cards, upcycled clothing and many more.

Sew don't Throw works on the same lines as Create, Reuse, Upcycle at Tuppenney Barn in Southbourne, keeping cloth and clothing out of landfill, and making something of our throw-away society that has longer value, and can be loved. Repairs to any fabrics or textiles including leather and canvas are welcome, ideas of how to repair items will come from right across the group, as will the skills to make the repairs.
