Among the suggestions from a recent survey of members was the idea of a group upcycling or repurposing clothing. ‘Upcycling’ clothing means reworking an existing garment to make it more upmarket. It could be a basic garment bought from a clothing store, but op shop or other second hand garments and items can also be used.

There is a time slot available on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays in the afternoons, and we’ll start on 9th and 23rd February from 1 to 3 pm.

So, if you’ve got a garment in your wardrobe that you don’t wear because it’s out of date or doesn’t fit, but can’t part with it because you love the fabric, bring it along!
