Stitch The Gap CIC

Arts and creative industries - Education, training and employment - Environment and recycling

We are a Social Enterprise Company who are passionate about bridging the sewing machine skills gap so that this valuable, life-long skill is not lost in our generation. Offering weekly classes for adults and children, servicing and repair of sewing machines, a lending library of sewing machines, alterations service and a fabric scrap store.

Using donated fabric to teach life long sewing skills, we believe that we can affect environmental change by equipping people with the skills and knowledge to repair, reuse and repurpose fabric and textiles. 

We have a unit within Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire but we can take our workshops to where there is a need in the area and bring all materials and machines to each session (as we have an electric van and take the machines and materials to set up mobile workshops/events).

Stitch the Gap CIC are set up as a Community Interest Company who are 'not-for-profit' and will re-invest back into our local community to ensure that sewing machine skills are very much in evidence here.
