Elizabeth the brains and craftiness behind Rethreading describes her venture.

“Mostly I make upcycled plus size women’s clothing and art to wear. Sometimes I make other things. Making is an essential part of my daily life, and without it I go a little stir crazy.

 

My mantra is: “Begin where you are, use what you have”

 

I have a passion (sometimes unkindly referred to as an obsession) for textiles. So many lovely fabrics and so little time to play with them all.

I started to make my own clothing because I couldn’t find garments I wanted to wear in the shops – colour! pattern! design! fabric! beautiful things! – and now I want to share my sewing with others.

 

I love a good rummage through an op shop (or thrift shop, if you prefer), looking for treasures to re-use in my garments, but occasionally I am seduced by new fabric. Usually I work with upcycled textiles though sometimes a length of new fabric will inveigle its way into a piece.”
