Sewing2gether is an inclusive organisation that seeks to provide life enhancing opportunities
for those who would be positively impacted from participating in their workshops. Thanks to
some generous funding from Santander, Sewing2gether is now able to offer a new FREE
weekly Sewing Workshop in Paisley.
This class is to support and teach those with English as a second language, or non-English
speakers; predominantly those who are new to the UK and would appreciate the opportunity
to engage with others in similar situations.
So much of modern activity doesn’t have a physical end result. Sewing can make you any
number of items from homeware, clothes, toys and gifts. Sewing is a visual experience so
verbal communication is secondary as we use step by step demonstrations and can
incorporate multi language flash cards.
Sewing2gether specialises in textile upcycling using unwanted or discarded fabric, saving it,
transforming it, giving it a renewed purpose and uncovering the value that was there all
along, taking something that was labelled as damaged goods, rubbish, useless, unwanted,
unloved and hopeless, and giving it a new lease of life with all it’s amazing flaws!
