How you can get involved

We’d love you to get involved in The Big Sew Off in your sewing communities wherever you are in the world. Whether you join us by sewing along with us, donate or buy some of our me-made clothes, you can help raise funds to help Mind provide advice and support to anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

The Sew Over It team and some of our lovely partners will be sewing on Thursday 12th May from 10am (GMT) for 24 hours non-stop in our London hub. Sponsor us using the Donate button or sew along with us and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. Sew on your own, in your sewing group or look out for your local sewing shops to see if they have an event in your area

There will be a live YouTube feed and lots of chats and lives on Instagram coming from our London hub throughout the 24 hours. Join us on the day and sew along with us. Don’t worry, we don’t expect everyone to sew for 24 hours, just sew for as long as you can!

We’ll be auctioning anything we make and donating the proceeds to Mind afterwards. We’d love you to do the same.

All donations can be made to Mind using our Just Giving page. Just click on the Donate button above.

Follow us @thebigsewoff and make sure you use the hashtag #thebigsewoff to tell us about your fundraising and auctions!

Whatever you do, you can make a real difference in helping to support anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
