Dignity Drive

We're supporting the Dignity Drive collection being held by Share the Dignity in March & August by stitching re-usable cloth pads. These will be made into kits with a selection of absorbency levels, a hanging strap for drying, and care instructions - ready for distribution by the Share the Dignity team. 

It's a great way to use up all the off-cuts left from our cloth nappy workshops. If you fancy helping out with this worthwhile cause - reach out, I'll always have a spare seat for a helper! (and you can learn all about re-usable pads while you're helping)
