Stitched Up is a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society inspiring communities across Greater Manchester to take action on sustainable fashion.
We currently run a sustainable clothing hub in Stretford Mall – a space for crafters, makers and tinkerers, providing an alternative to the chain stores and empty shops of your average British high street. We also bring our workshops, events and projects to locations across Greater Manchester.
We’re always looking for passionate and enthusiastic volunteers to join our team. We need help with all sorts of things, from preparing for and assisting at workshops, to admin, marketing and general running of our HQ and reclaimed haberdashery and fabric shop. You don’t have to be able to sew to volunteer with us, but it does help if you share our passion for sustainable fashion!
Whether you're into sustainability, fashion, or both we would love your help. As fast fashion giants continue to exploit both people and the environment we aim to get the community involved with practical solutions. The climate crisis isn't going anywhere soon but we know that sustainable fashion done right can be fun, creative and improve wellbeing, so help us take positive steps on a huge green issue.
It's a great way to meet other makers and activists from lots of different backgrounds whilst doing something good for the community. As a General Volunteer you will also be invited to volunteer at our events such as our Clothes Swaps, Repair Cafes and other workshops.
We offer travel reimbursement and a discount at our reclaimed haberdashery and fabric shop for all volunteers.
