The Sewing Lair
Since inception in November 2015, over 200,00 handmade items have been distributed to more than 350 organisations around Australia. We have grown from a small group in a suburb of Queensland to having volunteers and donors in every state and territory.
Sewing for Charity Australia work in partnership with established charities as well as grassroots community groups who engage in direct giving. We also donate directly to hospitals, nursing homes, schools and almost anywhere that needs some handmade love!
We are passionate about reducing textile waste and wherever possible engage in sustainable practice by upcycling used textiles and clothing to make handmade items for donation.
Join us as we work on our current monthly project and charity sewing/ knitting requests at The Sewing Lair.
All supplies provided and we have sewing machines available for use.
No experience necessary – we also need ironers, turners, cutters and more so if you aren’t crafty but would like a cuppa please feel free to join us <3
