Hackney studio leads community effort to dress the NHS

Updated: Mar 30


A creative studio teaching sewing in Hackney has drafted in a community of locals to make well-needed extra scrubs for the NHS.


Make Town has uploaded a PDF to its website on how to make scrubs and recruited an army of nimble-fingered volunteers armed with sewing machines and blue cloth.


Make Town Founder Brooke Dennis wrote on Facebook: “They say team work makes the dream work and I am so stoked to have the sewing community in my team."


She added: “Nothing like a virus to bring us together.”


It followed an urgent plea from hospital staff who said there was a national shortage of scrubs.


If you’re good at sewing and have a machine with an over locker, visit https://make.town to volunteer.
