Sew Ready is an award winning social enterprise based in Lisburn teaching sewing skills to community members of all ages and abilities. Our vision is to create a successful, inclusive society where every stitch matters and every maker is equally valued. To us, the future of fashion is a world in where everyone gets as excited about being part of the creative process as they do about wearing a garment and in doing so, being part of a growing slow fashion movement. 


Our social mission is to reintroduce a passion for sewing and textiles among young people and adults in Northern Ireland to help bridge the current skills gap within garment construction and save a skill from being lost in our generation. We are looking for someone who is passionate about helping our sewing community grow both online and in-person.
