Kits for Purple Iris Accessible Sewing Sessions

Thanks to our National Lottery Community Funding grant we have been able to purchase starter sewing supplies for people to borrow when they attend our accessible sewing sessions. Each kit contains:

  • fabric scissors
  • pinking shears
  • a pair of small scissors
  • a seam ripper
  • a measuring tape
  • pins
  • sewing machine needles
  • hand sewing needles (normal and self-threading)

To help everyone keep track of the supplies they’ve borrowed we decided to colour coordinate each set and it certainly makes packing away easier!

A big thank you to The Craft Cotton Co for sending us a wonderful donation of denim and cotton fabric. Their free Lunch Bag sewing tutorial combined with their fabric donation made the perfect matching bags for storing the kits in.
