Second Stitch

Social enterprise empowering women from diverse backgrounds through textiles.
Merri-bek — Coburg, VIC

It started with a couple of domestic machines and basic sewing supplies in an empty Coburg studio.

Now 7 years on, Second Stitch is a community space, helping women from asylum-seeker and refugee backgrounds find economic empowerment through sewing and textile programs.

Rachel Wood, Studio Coordinator

“The language of sewing is universal – it's a way to bring people from all over the world together, to find common ground, share stories and trade skills”
