We have two initiatives going on throughout Sustainable Fashion Week 2022 and both totally free of charge and hopefully useful as well as fun.
Both are also designed to encourage us all to do as much as we can when it comes to reusing, repurposing, rewearing and rethinking what we wear.
Because when you shop pre-loved at Tŷ Hafan not only do you pick up a bargain while supporting our work with children with life-shortening conditions and their families across Wales, but by buying pre-loved you also help to reduce waste and therefore help to fight climate change. So wins all round!
Make and Mend with Penny and Eira
You can learn how to repair your torn clothing with beautiful visible mends, and, how to make simple alterations with Penny Collins and super-crafty volunteer Eira, from our Handcrafted by Tŷ Hafan team.
On 21 September Penny and Eira will be in Tŷ Hafan’s Penarth shop on Stanwell Road between 12 noon and 2.30pm.
“Come along, bring something you want to mend or alter, learn some new skills and join in the fun,” says Penny, who coordinates a team of volunteers across South, Mid and West Wales to produce unique and beautiful handcrafted goods for Tŷ Hafan, using recycled and repurposed materials.
Win £100 worth of fabulous pre-loved clothing in our Sustainable Fashion Week Challenge
Calling all our regular Tŷ Hafan charity shop shoppers, and, those of you who’ve not yet shopped in a Tŷ Hafan shop!
Simply by sharing a photo or photos of your favourite preloved Tŷ Hafan charity shop finds on social media you could win £100 to spend in one of our shops of your choice!
All you have to do is visit one of our shops, choose an item of clothing that you like, and take a photo of yourself with it and share it on social media using the hashtag #sfwtyhafan2022.
We will pick at random one photo shared with the hashtag #sfwtyhafan2022 between now and September 25 – the final day of Sustainable Fashion Week 2022 – and the person who shared it will win £100 worth of clothing of their choice in a Tŷ Hafan shop of their choice.
It’s as easy as that!
