Reduce, Reuse, Reupholster

Today is Earth Day.  How are you going to change the world for the better? Nothing planned? Can we help? Whilst big plans and grand gestures are all very well, can we recommend a few things closer to home?

1. If your couch is looking a little tired and thread bear, don’t send it to the local dump. There it will sit, unused and unloved, for many years. Save the environment and your wallet by choosing to reupholster it instead. We have a wide range of designer fabrics available in store for you to choose from.
2. With a little bit of ingenuity, and sometimes a glue gun, stray pieces of fabric and old clothing can be converted into quilts, brooches, shoe clips and more. Head on down to your local store for patterns, tips and inspiration.
3. For the environmentally aware and technologically savvy sewer we would like to suggest converting that old t-shirt into a laptop sleeve. Simply by folding the shirt in half and stitching up the sides you’ll be creating a great way to protect your laptop from damage.
