Recycled Textile Market: Your Destination for Sewing and Craft

Recycled Textile Market

Do you want to join the “slow fashion” movement? Are you a sewist, a crafter or a maker who wants to replenish your stash? Then get ready for the Recycled Textile Market, which will be held at Morningside School of Arts, located at 590 Wynnum Rd, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Sunday, 25 August 2019.

You can browse and buy beautiful fabrics, patterns, zips, and buttons as well as handmade products from a number of stalls. It’s also an opportunity for the community to get together, talk about all things sewing, and listen to live music over coffee or tea.

The people behind Recycled Textile Market support slow fashion movement, so whether you want to turn your old tablecloth into trousers or sew scraps into a skirt, you can find people who support the slow slew. 

“Slow fashion” involves purchasing garments of higher quality that will last longer. It also supports and values fair and equitable treatment of people, animals, and the planet as a whole. Kate Fletcher of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion coined the term “slow fashion” and usage of the term has spread organically throughout the world.

If you are interested to sell your stash, simply register through their website. As of writing, indoor stalls are already sold out but outdoor stalls are still available. They also accept food and beverage stalls.

Stall owners will be allowed to sell fashion fabric, new or second-hand cotton reels, buttons, zips and other notions, sewing patterns, handmade products, and other textiles.
