Social Fabric [January 2022]

Supported by the Coop 1% Fund Social Fabric is a project which aims to reduce social isolation and boost wellbeing by bringing together wonderful humans who love sewing and want to use their skills for good!

We are holding fortnightly meetups and working together to make upcycled textile items for local causes and charities. The projects we work on will be decided collectively by the group, but might include anything from syringe bags for local hospitals, to banners for campaigns that are close to our makers’ hearts.

Previous projects we have worked on is making toiletry bags for people entering emergency accommodation via the Booth Centre.

We have chosen as a group to work on a knitting project, we started small socks and hats for premature and poorly babies. However in the new year we are starting to work on bonding squares. Bonding Squares: Bonding squares are intended to help NICU families to bond with their babies through smell

This project is aimed at adults facing mental health challenges or social isolation and anyone aged 18+ who feels that they would benefit. The group provides a safe and supportive environment in which to learn and share new skills and get to know peers in your community with common interests and who face similar issues.
