Meet your Maker
Mon 17 October 2016, 10:00 – 12:00 BST
Looking for clothing/textiles manufactures in the North East?
Weave would like to invite you to join us at one of our ‘Meet your Maker’ drop-in event We have a fully equipped maker-space where:
- creativity, learning and commerce meet to create employment opportunities for women with experience of the clothing industry
- makers are matched with designers and designers are matched with buyers
- fashion and fabrics workshops give everyone a chance to get involved
The enterprise is still fairly new but the team is already delivering quality products to national buyers – if you pop into one of Hamley’s toy stores anywhere in the world, the chances are the staff will be decked out in a costume stitched in Lynemouth!
This is just the beginning though. The maker-space opens up rich opportunities for people who want to commission collections, develop their interest in the fashion and textile trades, share their skills in workshops, see a successful social enterprise at work, and much more besides.
This drop-in session is specifically for designers who’d like to pop in to see our manufacturing facilities, meet the team, see samples of our work and discuss their own requirements. Following initial conversations, we’ll also able to provide you with information about costs, manufacturing capacity and production timescales.
