Description & History

Significant Seams draws on both the scientific and social characteristics of sewing to build community and support the vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Significant Seams fosters support, new perspectives, and practical skills, all which nurture self-confidence and community, through textile crafts and traditions.

We are headquartered in Walthamstow, East London at 131 Wood Street, an inclusive community centre with a showroom for our patchwork and quilting supply shop. All proceeds of our activities subsidise our range of community building and therapeutic programmes and activities.

We maintain a membership based Stitch & Craft Library and deliver gently theraputic workshop programmes (e.g. Waiting for Baby, Sew and Tell ESL & Upcycling).

Thank you for your interest in supporting us. Please note it may take up to a week for us to respond to your enquiry.
