We’re on a mission to get Britain sewing again, starting with our schools!
As part of the Great British Button Challenge, we’re giving out free buttons to schools, and challenging teachers to bring sewing back into UK classrooms.
The 2018 Hobbycraft Report surveyed 10,000 people and found that 1 in 5 people in the UK can’t sew on a button, with 52% never taught at school, so we're inviting teachers to pop along to their nearest Hobbycraft store and pick up a free pack of buttons and Great British Button Challenge stickers (terms apply, scroll down for details).
We're also giving teachers, parents and budding stitchers creative inspiration for imaginative button makes, with fun projects that are suitable for individuals and groups, and educational resources that link sewing to school learning topics.
