Vinnies Re Sew is an up-cycling, sustainable sewing initiative focused on re-purposing the textiles we can’t sell in Vinnies Op Shops. Instead of being ragged or taken to landfill and with the help of a regular supervisor and volunteers, we’ll be turning this waste into something new or repairing it for resale.
Re Sew is a community hub – a place where ideas, crafts and skills are shared across generations and the cultures that live in our diverse community.
But that’s not all – this initiative is a platform for a work experience program offered to participants from welfare clients, new immigrants, refugees and supported bridging programs. The goal is to build participants confidence and skill sets so that they can move into paid work or further education.
