For #internationalwomensday Sew Confidents Colette started making reuseble sanitary pads. These will be getting donated to vulnerable ladies throughout Glasgow with the help of Simon Community Scotland ! 👏🏼 Depending how many we manage to make some will also be getting sent to Pippi House Empowerment Program .
One in five women experience period poverty in Scotland alone, with those affected resorting to using old clothes, toilet paper and newspapers as alternative solutions, or relying on friends and food banks for period wear! ☹️
If anyone would like to help make some (or even help with cutting out etc if you can't sew) comment below or send us a message 😊👭
There is 8 sewing machines in the studio but if we run out of spaces OR if you would rather make some at home, and drop them in to us that would be great! Just message us for the pattern etc.
We will also happily take any donations for some cotton & other fabric to actually create the pads & wash bags.
