Recycled Resource Statement: “We believe in Sustainable Sewing which seeks to reuse and conserve existing materials, use earth- and people-friendly fabrics, and cultivate the idea that recycling, up-cycling, reducing, and repurposing is beneficial for our community. In a world that chronically squanders resources, it has become important to recast sewing as a sustainable skill and a component of a new thrift.”
“Sewing as practiced by our mothers and grandmothers was traditionally about self-reliance, ingenuity, and a smart use of resources. Today, sewing can recapture these qualities as well as foster creative expression, reduce stress, and create social bonds. Sustainable sewing, such as refashioning new clothes from old ones, encourages fashion independence and – as with past generations – the pleasure of owning fine clothes and linens made at home.”
