The Frocktails team know there are many people in our local sewing community who want to make their hobby as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible, so we are very pleased to have Wild Orchard Fabric Co. as one of our key sponsors.
The Wild Orchard Fabric Co. is an online shop dedicated to supporting the home sewing community. They sell fabric by the meter, haberdashery kits and sewing project kits. They are an ethically inspired business offering fabrics made with high quality natural fibres, no polyester or poly blends. All their packaging is plastic free and they passionately encourage slow sewing versus fast fashion.
The Frocktails team want to encourage as everyone attending to consider sustainability then planning their outfit and there will be a prize for sustainable sewing on the night. Wild Orchard have provided a £50 voucher for their online shop (Competition details coming soon). That’s got us thinking about all the ways we can make our sewing more sustainable. It’s the perfect opportunity to re-fashion an outfit from some ready-to-wear clothes, or change up something you’ve already #memade to make it Frocktails ready!
For anyone inspired to sew with sustainable fabrics, Wild Orchard will also be offering 30% off in the online shop for everyone attending Frocktails!
