A VIRUS DIVIDES US, A NEEDLE STITCHES US TOGETHER.

Repair and remake by yourself anytime anywhere.

An ongoing project that advocates Slow Fashion through multifaceted activities, including online to offline teaching and workshops, publishing, participatory art and exhibition. To bring back the ethos of respect to the art of clothes making, it aims to reconnect the community, general public and the future fashion designers to co-create and join in the model of change, and bring back the style and purpose to the overlooked world of sewing. Thereby it also re-educates the quality of design and recovers the mindful soul through the process.

 

We don’t need a hundred billion tons of production per year,

only the clothes having good quality and emotional value deserve to be made and last long.

 

We offer a viable, wearable alternative to love fashion in a sustainable and sensible way.

Online workshop at CHAT, THE MILLS

David Medalla's artwork A Stitch in Time invites visitors to attach a keepsake or memorable item to the hanging fabric displayed at CHAT’s Arcade.

Echoing alongside, I am honoured to hold a workshop to teach you stitches which allow you to ‘draw with a needle’ or attach items to a pre-loved garment or fabric. Decorate a preloved garment (i.e.: a jacket, a pair of jeans, a shirt) with words or a small item (i.e.: a stone, a small toy, an odd earring whose pair got lost)
