Sewing is Nourishment for the Soul?

From the Dolly studio in central Lewes (via the path on the way to Tesco), Diana designs and sells her own sustainable cut-out and ready-to-sew clothing kits and ready-made collection. She also runs sewing classes and provides a bespoke alteration service. Her courses include creating, mending, clubs for 10 to 18, and a whole range of kits and clothes to make

​A dedicated campaigner for sustainable fashion, Diana leads the Dolly team in awareness-raising campaigns and events. Designed to inform and inspire, Dolly’s events explore why our clothes are costing the earth and what we can each do to be the change.
