The Upcycling Challenge

Are you ready to take on our Upcycling Challenge?

Everyday we will be running our Upcycling Challenge on the Stitch Stage.

What is the Challenge?

In teams of two contestants will be given an old item of clothing (a T-Shirt, pair of jeans, a shirt) plus a metre of fabric and some trims. The teams will then have 45 minutes to create something new out of their materials.

The audience, will then select their favourite garment. The winning team will walk away with a great sewing prize.

When will the session take place?

The sessions will take place on The Stitch Stage during The Stitch Festival . A full-timetable of sessions will be available soon.

You can enter as a team of two or as an individual and we will pair you up with a team mate.

We will get back to you on a first come first serve basis.
