Give Us Your Tees!

A souvenir t-shirt can be a great way to commemorate a special time in your life. There are certain things I would rather not remember, however – like in 1998 when I was a huge Hanson fan, or 2006 when I drank Dr Pepper constantly (my teeth are still suffering). Truth is, I have vacu-packs full of tees that, despite their sentimental value, I really wouldn’t object to parting with. Luckily then, Brisbane’s Stitchery Collective have just launched a T-Shirt Drive to put all our unwanted tees to much better use. Travelling to Venice to represent Australia at the Third Annual International Kids Festival, old shirts will be used in children’s upcycling workshops to create winter woolies like scarves, beanies and ponchos. Donations can be any size, colour or material, plain or printed, collared or v-neck – any shirt is a good shirt! Deliver or post your contribution by January 31st to their studio at 1/57 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, or visit The Stitchery website for more details. (And while you’re there, why not check out their awesome range of workshops, classes and events – including the new Life Drawing with Clothes On?). {Image from here}.
