Sew Love On Tour!

Project 2015-09-16 22:24:33 +1200

In June last year NZ got its first sewing lounge, (like an internet cafe but with sewing machines instead) full to the brim with recycled goodness and shared resources, the mission was to upcycle textiles and upskill communities - through our space, workshops and pop ups we are passionate about inspiring more makers, menders and conscious consumers!Sew love HQWe have absolutely loved our time in St Kevins Arcade, Kroad but we are set to close our doors at the end of October. I have personally worked SOoO hard for the past few years, day and night to make the dream a reality, so it's sad to say goodbye to that gorgeous little space so soon. But in the sew love spirit of seeking the positive, we all have to see this as an opportunity to grow and step up to grab the next dream....and that's going to be spreading the love further to you NZ.

Sew Love a good POP UP!The clan of sewing machines and I are sew keen to answer the calls and come to your town providing workshops and pop up events but in a completely new way...

No doubt you've heard of food trucks, but how about a ...             Mobile Sewing Lounge/Tea House/Op Shop Loving Supertruck?! 

I very much sew love to DIY anything, but I cannot craft together a truck... YOUR HELP IS NEEDED to help buy Sew Love a set of wheels and get it fit for this summer's journey.

  • $15k sew lovely vehicle (to fit all the goodness inside)
  • $2.5k sew lovely paint job (so people can see us coming!)
  • $2.5k sew lovely fit out (so the machines can be safe and sittin' pretty inside)

Thats a total of $20K. Anything extra on top of that goal will go towards fuel in the tank and help with documenting/editing our journey of sustainability and sewing across our beautiful country.Sew Some Love at Splore

SEW WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?

Check out the rewards, please pledge what you can, and share with all your family and friends. If you're into your social meds we would sew love to hear what you sew love most about sew love (phew sew much!) just tag #isewlove... in your own selfie video and share this link love around!

Good things take time, so some rewards may not happen instantly, but rather you can redeem them (Re-thinker, Re-maker, Private Sewcial, Sleepout) when we get to your town on tour this summer! 

WELCOME TO OUR COMMUNITY!

Cheers muchly,

xx Sarah Sew Love & Betty, Barry, Bruce et al xx 

 

I have absolutely loved Sarah’s weekly upcycling class. What a fun and friendly way to learn and make friends. Sarah is a creative, enthusiastic and extremely talented teacher. Her commitment to loving the planet whilst creating a fantastically unique home and wardrobe is inspiring!  

- Jo 

 

The best night course I have ever taken. I loved the topics, what I learnt and the fact that I can continue to use these skills, and improve them myself going forward. I made new friends with common interests which has been so rewarding. Upcycling is the future and Sew Love is at the forefront. 

- Amanda

 

I loved Sarah's Sew From Scratch course and would highly recommend it. Not only was Sarah lovely company and a fantastic teacher, it's given me the confidence to try out some projects of my own at home. Most importantly, I feel really inspired to look at materials and pieces in new ways, so I cant wait to start up-cycling, mending and re-purposing. Thanks so much Sew Love!

- Lucy

I sew love that mending and making can bring people together from all walks of life. People get making with their own hands, leave with a finished, wearable garment, and most importantly feel EMPOWERED because they learned and did it themselves. Sew freakin' love it!

Thank YOU for believing!

THANK YOU so much to all the amazing pledgers who look at that goal of $20k and know that their $10 or $100 CAN make a difference, thank YOU for BELIEVING and starting us off on this journey. xxx
