Fashion For Free!

Congratulations to all 2018 winners!


We had so much hosting all guests this year who entered garments for this year’s theme “Fashion Through The Ages”! There were some exceptional entries which made it very hard to choose our winners! We’re now getting our plans together for next year, but in the meantime, make sure to keep practicing your sewing skills!

What is Fashion For Free?

Create something amazing for free and enjoy a fun packed day here at our sewing rooms & factory in Alfreton. The competition is true to its name and completely free to enter and it costs nothing to take part and visit us!

Who Can Enter? – Any primary age school children age 4 to 11

What’s involved? – Make a textiles creation, perhaps an item of clothing, a bag or a hat, without it costing anything. Reuse scraps of material, old clothes or even unwanted curtains to create something spectacular! (one entry per child)

Interactive Factory Tour – Visit our sewing rooms, learn about how clothes are made from start to finish and have an opportunity to join in lots of fun activities, games and competitions. Certificates for every entry and trophies and prizes shall be awarded for the best designs and to the winning school.





Fashion For Free will return in 2019, and we will be contacting all local schools after the summer break-  but please do register your interest by emailing [email protected] if you would like to consider taking part, and we shall make sure to keep you in the know!
