We asked our fellow sustainable designers to compile all their unused fabric, notions, trims & accessories and bring them to us for a huge Spring cleaning sale!

We're offering these low-priced but high quality fabrics and trims to local students and designers alike.

This event is a way to dispose of excess without contributing to the waste stream, and a way to share sustainable and vintage fabrics with students and young designers.

Come pick up full rolls or just a few yards at amazing prices!

This was GUILDED, a sale hosted by Tara St James and Bahar Shahpar, two Brooklyn based fashion designers. Set in Tara’s studio in downtown Manhattan there was a real buzz of excitement with many designers riffling through piles and rolls of great stuff. I got a bit carried away! No real plan for the fabrics but I’m a magpie when it comes to fabric- especially wovens! I got an amazing pea silk Indian woven monochrome, an Aztec inspired jacquard, a print and some trimmings!

This was a great thing to go to, to see Tara again and to meet Bahar who is wonderful!

You will be hearing more about them shortly as I do some more interviews for the website!

Also I learnt how to crochet!
