Sew Fabulous is a community interest sewing studio located in Brighton Open Market.
In July 2021 we are hosting an eco fashion and textiles event.

Re-skill, Re-use, Re-fashion. A circular economy project.

This project has come partly as a direct response to the 350,000 tons of textiles that go to landfill in the U.K every year. Partly because of the sweatshop factories and working conditions throughout the world, and the environmental impact of fast fashion.

And partly to showcase the amazing work we do at Sew Fabulous, and the amazing work that many of our colleagues throughout the city at other organsiations do.

City clean have 75 textile recycling bins throughout our city. 40% of profits gained from selling on donated clothes go towards the funding of small communtiy groupls like ours. The funding for our project has come through this strand.

We will be working with designers, charities, artists and makers, inspirational speakers and more to collaborate on thisĀ
