Stitch Kitchen is under the Just Atelier Trust which was founded in 2015 as a shared passion for creating a local solution to a global problem of social and environmental waste throughout the fashion industry.
We are looking for volunteers to sort the fabric. Anyone with any kind of sorting, display experience (working in an op shop for example) or knowledge of textiles would find their skills put to good use.
We receive a vast array of sewing and textile craft supplies from individuals in our community each week. With the help of our volunteers we sort these materials and display them to maximise value in our second-hand haberdashery. These include yarn for knitting/crochet etc; fabrics of all sizes and types; buttons; zips; ribbons; lace; patterns and everything you can image in a craft store.
Anyone with a willingness to learn about different textiles, attention to detail, patience and a positive attitude is very welcome.
Stitch Kitchen is at 474 Princes Street (beside Artsenta).
Comfortable clothes which you can move in, and preferably don't hold much static. Closed in shoes for safety.
Full health and safety training provided along with training in how each task can be done, with flexibility to adapt to your abilities and ideas.
Main time for fabric sorting is weekly on Wednesdays 10:30-1pm, but other times are available by arrangement.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
