A summer get-together with talks, haberdashery and textile swaps hosted by Everyone Needs Pockets – all welcome!

This year’s speakers are Tamara Cincik and Katherine Symonds-Moore.

Tamara Cincik is Founder and CEO of Fashion Roundtable, the leading think tank for the fashion industry and professor of Fashion and Sustainability at Bath Spa University, the new National Centre for Fashion and Sustainability which will lead on regenerative and radical solutions and business practice.

Katherine Symonds-Moore is a sustainability specialist who was head of sustainability for the London Olympic Games and will share her experience of working with brands such as Chanel supporting them to build and strengthen their corporate responsibility strategies.

There will also be:

  • A haberdashery, fabric and (textile related) book swap.

Please bring along any items you’d like to swap.

  • Share a dish lunch.

Please bring along a dish to share marked up with allergy cautions. Hot drinks will be provided!

  • A raffle to help raise some money for the work we do at Everyone Needs Pockets

Bring a bit of cash with you if you can – donations are welcome for books plus for the raffle!

Doors open from 9.30am and we will start at 10am prompt.

Come along and connect with others to take action on growing projects and enterprises that reuse textiles, save carbon and landfill and increase our wellbeing: revamp, repurpose, reuse, repair.

Everyone Needs Pockets is a growing network of 150+ makers, designers, stitchers, knitters, sustainable fashion fans and researchers. You might be a mender, a maker or just someone who loves clothes. You don’t need skills, only the desire to find out more!

There’s a warm and friendly welcome!
