I am now working for TRAID as an Education Officer for secondary schools, which means i get to have loads of fun educating the youths about the possibilities for recycling, up-cycling, end of life strategies and how they can help us fund projects across the world that make such a huge difference in peoples lives check out for more details!)

We had a great time travelling do an Industry day for year 9's in North West London, who were set the challenge of creating amazing accessories out of donated denim - some amazing things came out of it!

Next we set off for Bournemouth to hold a range of up-cycling workshops to kick start their amazing Fair Trade fortnight with Friends of the Earth - it was really great to see so many people get inspired and build their confidence on the sewing front!

On Saturday we held another Sew Good workshop at the WI huge Swapping party - there were homemade cakes, endless cups of tea, a huge selection of clothes to swap, and loads of lovely ladies wanting to customise, alter their new swaps!

Photos coming soon!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
