Just because it is ripped – it doesn’t mean that you have to throw it away.

We live in a very throwaway society and want something is broken or ripped, we tend to throw it in the bin and go out and buy something new. This is a very bad habit to get yourself into an as well is spending too much money, you’re also increasing your carbon footprint and you’re not taking care of the environment.

If your favourite jacket and jeans get torn then your first reaction shouldn’t be to immediately discard it and go out and buy another one. It’s likely that these two pieces of clothing have a little bit of history and it would be nice to be able to hold onto them for just a little bit longer. The fortunate thing for many of us is that you can find local sewing shops in Exeter that are more than up to the task. The following are just some of the services that they provide.

  1. Adjusting your clothing – There are two ways that this can go. You either need your clothes widened because you have put on a little bit of weight or you need them reduced in size because your diet has been a great success. Whatever the circumstances, the changes can be made quite easily.
  2. Adjusting other things – Your local sewing shops are not just there to help you out when you have a clothes emergency because they can also sew and mend other things like curtains for your windows and quilts for your bed.

Hopefully this article will stop you from throwing away your old but loved clothing and instead take them to your local sewing shops.
