Create & Sustain (@create.and.sustain on Instagram) is a non-profit organisation ‘dedicated to shifting environmental change with our collective voice in the quilting, home sewing, and craft industries’. They have been very active with live events recently and have done really interesting take-overs, such as by Zak Foster who makes burial quilts (@zakfoster.quilts) and ChiChi Nwizu of @yesimademydress_. This is a fantastic community for those who love sewing and quilts but are concerned about sustainability. Find out more here.
Speaking of sustainability, Land In Our Names (LION), a grassroots collective aiming to reconnect Black British communities with the land and challenge existing power dynamics, has a lovely quilt give-away on their Instagram account at the moment – check out @landinournames.
