Common Threads – Woven through Community
HANDS ON WORKSHOP
If you are passionate about bringing new life into your garments, join Petra Richardson who will tell you why it’s so important that we take action in our clothing care practices to help slow fashion down and how we can Repair to Rewear our clothes by fixing them up so they will last longer and we can ReLove them all over again!
Petra will share her tried and tested tips on how to best care for your clothing and will then offer to help you with an item of clothing you have with you to remove a stain, to fix a hole, to sew on a button, to repair a tear etc. She will bring along her extensive range of threads for you to use but asks that you rumble through your button jar and bring some extras with you.
Petra loves to create lots of discussion in her workshops and is very happy to exchange ideas and solutions with you.
She will also bring along a rack of clothing items that she has upcycled, all manufactured using natural fibres, which she will discuss with you.
Petra Richardson has a passion for saving amazing op shop finds; bypassing landfill to create wardrobe favourites.
Her love of beautiful fabrics and excellent tailoring has grown through her studies in Fashion Design with Technology, in the UK. Petra’s fashion journey has included design, retail, visual merchandising, promotions and styling. Her business was born from her keen desire to marry sustainability with the fashion industry.
Petra is focused on slowing fashion down, buying better and choosing well.
Clothing is hand-picked by feel and quality. Selecting natural fibres that stand the test of time and feel amazing to wear.
Petra says, “I love injecting the gems of clothing I find with lots of TLC and I love breathing new life into old pieces.”
