The Textile Group meets regularly in people’s homes to mend and update clothes, swap clothes and fabric, and knit, crochet, make buttons or do any other crafts that take our fancy.

Clare helping with the sewing machineWe are a very sociable group and all are welcome, particularly people who cannot sew, mend, knit etc. but would like to learn.

We often put on a Trashion Show that showcases all that we stand for with mended, upcycled beautiful and practical clothes, along with fun outfits made from rubbish.
