Even though we practice responsible manufacturing, making our workwear still produces offcuts and waste which we reuse where possible.

The smaller pieces which we are unable to use is either used for stuffing or sent for recycling with a number of charities.

Where possible, the larger pieces are reworked into our range of accessories to make our range of gifts.

Our Dressmakers Prints are three different unique prints commissioned by The Stitch Society from Hannah Turlingtonand are perfect for the dressmaker, sewing enthusiast or general maker as Hannah’s prints are hand carved from our collection of vintage haberdashery and capture the essence of the dressmakers essential tools.

Taking inspiration from the beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside, people, places, history and humour of Yorkshire, Hannah creates art that is fun, playful and a vision to behold. With her quirky and inspiring designs, she produces individual designs that make you smile. Her obsession with print and surface pattern design is something that is quite primal and has always had the ability to visualise what the end result will be.

As she always does ‘artist’s proofs’ and then only prints in very short print runs means a maximum of 10 prints,  explaining this as not wanting to be reliant on a few images and would rather be working on and thinking about new images all of the time. Hannah’s current work is focusing on surface pattern design in the form of wallpaper and fabric, and she has recently completed commissioned wallpaper for homes. Believing that art and surface pattern design should be a part of everyday life Hannah would love to work with larger companies to create bespoke home wares and furnishings. She has worked for ‘PBS International’ who deal with pollen bags for crops internationally, for their company calendar and marketing material. It has been a marriage of science and surface pattern design that has created phenomenal results that are incredibly striking.

The prints are available in the Cotton Reel, Scissors and Tape Measure.
