collaborate - SUPPORT - ENJOY
A Stitch-a-Long with Crispina is a collaborative sewing experience that supports the needs of our extended textile upcycling community. Each participant makes a square from a kit or from their own recycled fabrics using our pattern and color range. Squares are collected and compiled into a finished quilt/blanket that is used to raise funds to support a worthy cause.
You can build a textile upcycling business that supports the planet and your ideal lifestyle with these simple foundations.

MEET YOUR MENTOR
Hi, I'm Crispina ffrench. I'm in the business of helping recycled textile artists become successful entrepreneurs.
I'm a recycled textile activist, industry professional, and entrepreneur who has dedicated my life to building a sustainable business by upcycling textiles. I've been doing this work for more than 30 years...long before anyone even uttered the words, "up-cycling" or "eco."
My ultimate goal is to live a beautiful life while reducing global textile waste and show others how to do it too. I've worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry: Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, and Timberland among others. I share everything I know with recycled textile artists so they can become successful entrepreneurs. And save the world at the same time.
