St Margaret's Hospice have challenged Somerset residents to get creative as the charity's sewing bee returns.

The even runs from July 1 to July 31 in which participants are tasked to up-cycle old materials into a new Summer themed item. A maximum of £15 can be spent, with the final product going before the charity's retail director who will decide the winner.

Dani Loader, Retail Marketing Assistant at St Margaret’s said: “We’re so thrilled to be holding our St Margaret’s Summer Sewing BeeChallenge. 

“The aim of this competition is for you to have fun and be creative but also to be more environmentally friendly by re-using and recycling clothing and materials. We had some amazing entries on our last challenge back in 2021 and can’t wait to see people across our community get creative and transform their clothes!”

The winners' item will be placed in their nearest St Margaret’s shop and will be displayed throughout August. Every participant will receive a St Margaret's Summer Sewing Bee e-certificate.

To enter a submission email St Margaret's Hospice or contact them via Facebook.
