Stay tuned. We have a whole month of refashioning inspiration coming your way courtesy of a phenomenal line up of stitchers.

  • On Instagram: Share a pic using the hashtags #therefashioners2017  and #suitsyou
  • On Facebook: There is a community board here where you can post your makes (You will need to request an invite to join)

Only entries shared via the above 2 methods will be entered into the competition. Closing date for entries is 31st October 2017 Midnight GMT.

Good luck!!! Get refashioning.
