Global Stitch Up Scrunchie Set #1
The Global Stitch Up is a sewing hub hosted at Cultural Converations in Whakatū Nelson. What started as a social group has quickly turned into a social enterprise where the participants are able to sell the products and projects they create.
We hope that by sharing our ecommerce platform with the Global Stitch Up artists, we can share what we've learned starting and growing our online business so that they can transfer these skills to their own businesses. Or, that they can earn a bit of money whilst connecting with other migrants, former refugees and members of the host community.
Economic growth is the most powerful instrument for reducing poverty and improving the quality of life. The Global Stitch up wants all women to feel empowered with this project and we believe in making the world a fairer and more equitable place.
It's important to note that we are only hosting these products on our website. We take no cuts or admin fees, so every cent of the sale price goes back to the Global Stitch Up Artists
This is from the Cultural Conversations web site explaining their "why" for starting The Global Stitch Up:
We have created a sewing hub where we want women from diverse backgrounds to
Feel safe and empowered.
Upskill but also learn from each other’s cultural traditions.
Engage in conversation and make new friends.
Gain independence and responsibility.
