It’s that time of year again when many of us start to think about an Autumn clear-out of our clothes, perhaps throwing away some of the well-used summer ones and bringing out our warm jumpers and long-sleeved tops. If you’re doing it and you’ve got in mind commissioning a Patch creation to keep as an heirloom, or give away as a unique present, then here are three easy steps to give you a pile of clothes filled with memories that you can send to me.
1 – Keep
Sort through your clothes, or those of your children, and pull out any that you just can’t bear to part with – perhaps because of the memories they hold, or because you want them as an heirloom for your children’s children. Put these in a memory box or other safe place.
2 – Create
Sort through the rest of the pile and pull out any that have interesting motifs, patterns or memories that you love. Put these in a pile and get in touch with me to see what I could make them into – either for you to keep, or to give away as unique Christmas or birthday presents. For ideas please visit my Boutique.
3 – Charity
Go through the remaining clothes and put any that have stains or look well-worn in the bin. The rest should be good enough to give away to friends, relatives or charity.

Happy sorting, and please let me know how you get on.
