Sewing Room Volunteers

Our sewing room is open to all who have basic sewing skills and a passion for vintage clothing.

Our volunteers help out in a number of ways, here’s what might be involved in volunteering in the sewing room:

  • Utilising patterns and using sewing machines to make accurate vintage clothing, according to interests and skills
  • Basic sewing duties; sewing, cutting, hemming, etc.
  • Supporting our Learning and Curatorial teams projects
  • Getting involved in our events programme
  • Working independently or in a team

You can support our costumes provision with your sewing skills, whether you are experienced or have only learnt the basics. Have a few spare hours per week and an itch to develop your creativity skills?
