Community Sewing Workshop : Reusable Period Pads

Join us here at The Incubator in the Creative Campus, every month for our community sewing initiative, the first series of which is: Reusable Period Pads!

Come and help us sew reusable period pads for those that need them!

Last Saturday of every month
10am - 2pm
The Creative Campus

27th August

24th September

29th October

26th November

Our aim is to create a steady supply of reusable pads that we can donate to schools and community centres around Tauranga, in the hope that no-one has to go without these basic necessities.

We have developed a pattern, from which to cut and sew, a variety of recycled and repurposed fabrics we have been collecting. We even have an awesome new dome press to add beautiful snaps! 

We'll have 8 new Bernina sewing machines and 2 new Bernina over-lockers which will be set up in the Creative Campus for us to use.

We'll also have all the necessary bits and bobs available to get sewing and producing a stockpile of pads, but we'd always appreciate any and all donations. Especially...
- Any nice cotton or linen fabrics
- Flannelette fabrics
- Towelling
- Rain coating or water resistant linings
- Threads
- Scissors

Feel free to contact Ruth at workshops@theincubator.co.nz or on 07 5713232 for more info or discuss how you can contribute.

Huge thanks to The Mazda Foundation and Bernina Tauranga for their generous support with this initiative.
