Thank you to all who donated supplies, volunteered, or came out to the event to support the Fashion Revolution Make-A-Thon!
Our first shift in the morning did a lot of cutting and pressing to get all of the materials ready to be sewn into our beautiful tote bags. Further into the day the tote bags really starting flying off the sewing machines! In the last two hours of the event we had 16 people buzzing around The Makehouse working hard to finish up all the tote bags. Each bag is unique to the sewists who cut and made them. All materials for the event were donated by our suppliers and our wonderful Makehouse community!
Our teams made over 40 tote bags that will be sold here at The Makehouse and other locations around Victoria. Proceeds from the tote bags will go to the Indigenous Perspectives Society which is a local not-for-profit that offers training and services that help create a deeper understanding of Indigenous perspectives, cultural differences, and the need for self-determination. We are so grateful to everyone who came to support the event, donate supplies, and volunteer time sewing up a storm on Saturday. The event was a great success, and we will be hosting more in the future! Make sure to stay tuned for sign-up announcements, these are definitely an event you do not want to miss!
Check out the photos for all the fun we had, and we hope to see you at the next Make-A-Thon! Thank you again to everyone who supported the event!
