Breakfasters: Women From Refugee and Asylum Seeker Backgrounds Are Making Face Masks With Second Stitch

Second Stitch is a social enterprise that employs women from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds to make textiles. Ordinarily, they operate as a training program, but the coronavirus pandemic has focussed the organisation primarily on clothing alterations, repairs, homewares, and face masks. “We provide clothing alterations and a repair service, so that’s been a really great way for the community to get involved in our space,” Second Stitch studio coordinator Rachel Woods tells Breakfasters.

Head to secondstitch.org.au for more details on how to get involved and to place an order for face masks or other items.
