A LITTLE BIT ABOUT STITCH THE GAP
We are a start-up Social Enterprise Company who are passionate about bridging the sewing machine skills gap so that this valuable, life-long skill is not lost in our generation.
We are passionate about our environment and believe that we can only affect environmental change by equipping people with the skills and knowledge to do this. Our beginner sewing sessions are a small step in the direction to learning how to up-cycle, re-purpose and repair clothes and textiles.
We are a mobile unit who are primarily based within East Dunbartonshire. We can take our workshops to where there is a need in the area and bring all materials and machines to each session.
Stitch the Gap are set up as a Community Interest Company who are 'not-for-profit' and will re-invest back into our local community to ensure that sewing machine skills are very much in evidence here.
Recently, we were really proud to be awarded the FirstPort 'Start-it' grant. FirstPort are an organisation who support Social Enterprise in Scotland.
