Dress the NHS
We have joined an army of volunteer machinists and are putting our sewing skills to good use during the COVID lockdown. Scrub Hub Club and other volunteer groups up and down the country have formed to come to the aid of the NHS and other healthcare workers who are saving lives without the proper equipment.
Can you help??
I CAN SEW
1 ) Sewing patterns
Free Scrubs pattern Pdf: https://sewdifferent.co.uk/scrubs-paper-pattern-not-for-profit/
Print at home A4 or download the A0 pattern and send/upload your pattern files to a printer who will post out to you (use code HELPTHENHS here for 50% off printing https://click-post.co.uk/upload)
2 ) Join your local Scrub hub group. If you are local to Stitch we are working with the Bury/Oldham/Rochdale group but there are lots of other groups operating on Facebook giving advise, organising distribution of fabrics and patterns and then organising collection from your home, if you are not on Facebook maybe a friend could join a group for you.
If you are volunteering and need advice on some of the tricky aspects of making scrubs we're here to help. Book one of our online sewing lessons with Linzi and use code SCRUBS at checkout to get a 30 minute coaching session for free.
