Sew, a needle pulling thread

Based at the Wellbeing Space at the Wilson Hospital, Project Preloved is teaching complete novices how to upcycle and mend well-loved items and give them a second breath of life. As well as providing free two-hour long workshops, sewing kits, and expert tuition from professional sewers and designers, the project also provides a great place for local people – 60% of them from east Merton – to meet and work in a gentle and supportive environment.
