Stitch Don’t Ditch by Karin Rubing
The final poster in Karin Rubing’s mending triptych inspires us to extend the life of the clothes that have given us so much comfort and joy over the years.
"When a piece of clothing of mine gets a rip, or is just about to break because of wear and tear, I feel pleased," says Karin. "This garment has maybe kept me warm when it was a cold and rugged winter’s day, or provided me with softness when I was having a sleep-in after a hard night. Now I get the chance to return a favour and give that garment a new life. There are so many times in life when we don’t get the chance to give things back to those who have helped us. But our clothes are not going away unless we throw them away, so honour that shirt and give it a little loving."
Check out the other two posters in Karin’s series, 'Sewn Not Thrown' and ‘Sytt Slår Nytt’.
Why?
Extending the average life of your favourite clothing items by nine months could reduce the carbon, water and waste footprints of your wardrobe by up to 30%. It also leads to an unquantifiable increase in happiness, as the clothes we love make us feel better.
How?
Craftsy.com are true scholars of stitching, and offer a wide range of online technique videos that will equip you with the skills to give your beloved clothes a long and prosperous life.

This week at the shop. Plenty of new stock in. Come and grab your self a bargain. 

We thought we’d feature a few of  our favourite Charity Shop bloggers out there. So here is A Thrifty Mrs a blogger from Manchester. She has plenty of charity shop goodness on her blog. We have also lost a minute or two on her youtube channel. Well worth at look. 

Love this Rag Rug teaser film from The Amazing’s 

More from the Autumn Collection at Revive.

We had an other fantastic workshop on Saturday, Annie Fisher once again leading the way with the knitting needles. Smiles, biscuits, tea and knitting. What’s not to like. Check our facebook events page for up coming workshop details. 

Inside Revive: We thought we’d try and show you more of the day to day happenings at Revive. If you’ve not been before, please come and visit us soon. If you have any spare time what so ever we would love to have come and help around the shop. No experience necessary, just a willingness to serve with a smile is all that is needed. Come be at the heart of what Revive is all about, it’s much more than just a charity shop. Hope to see you soon. :-)
