Refashion Event, Oxford Town Hall, Tuesday 19th February 2013

Vintage-Patch is excited to be attending the ‘Refashion’ event in Oxford on 19th February, where we’ll be selling our range of iron on patches and giving a demo of how to carry out a simple refashion of a garment using them.  Why not bring along an old item of clothing yourself, to see which of our patches might give it a new lease of life!

We’re also offering a 10% discount on the day to anyone mentioning this blog or our facebook page when attending.

A little more information about the event

After the success of last year’s Refashion event at Oxford Town Hall (700 visitors, masses of clothes swapped and recycled, excellent press and Green Apple environmental award) Oxford City Council is making it an annual event, and this year it happens on Tuesday 19th February between 1pm-7pm  in the Main Hall of the Town Hall. 

The day promises to be bigger and better than before, with more schools and colleges showcasing their work on the catwalk and more stalls selling upcycled textile crafts and clothes. 

Entry is free – we hope to see you there.
