Presented by: The Artery

Join us here at The Incubator in the Creative Campus, every month to help us help us sew reusable period pads for those that need them!

These monthly workshops will be held on the last Saturday of every month in the Creative Campus. Our first meeting will be Saturday, 30th July, 10am – 2pm.

Our aim is to create a steady supply of reusable pads that we can donate to schools and community centres around Tauranga, in the hope that no-one has to go without these basic necessities.

We have developed a pattern, from which to cut and sew, a variety of fabrics we have been collecting. We even have an awesome new dome press to add beautiful snaps!

We’ll have 8 new Bernina sewing machines and 2 new Bernina over-lockers which will be set up in the Creative Campus for us to use.

We’ll also have all the necessary bits and bobs available to get sewing and producing a stockpile of pads, but we’d always appreciate any and all donations. Especially…
– Any nice cotton or linen fabrics
– Flannelette fabrics
– Towelling
– Rain coating or water resistant linings
– Threads
– Scissors

Feel free to contact Ruth at workshops@theincubator.co.nz or on 07 5713232 for more info or discuss how you can contribute.

Huge thanks to The Mazda Foundation and Bernina Tauranga for their generous support with this initiative.
