Waste is the scourge of our time. We have all been guilty of having more clothes than we need or buy cheaply, with little thought to what conditions people work in for the manufacturer to be able to sell so cheaply, only to throw away months later when they are no longer in fashion.

Just like buying re-useable coffee cups you can also reduce your household waste by not just giving your clothes to charity, but also by remaking and repairing what you have.

Join our sewing guru Natalie Morel-Lewis for 4 weeks of turning your existing clothes into something you'll wear again and keep.hurry. No one will know the difference.

A special bonus offer for sewing students to get you started - The Makers’ Lab Essentials Sewing Kits normally $35, Just $28 for students.
