A few months ago a woman named Jacquelyn came in to In Stitches. Little did we know that we would both be able to help each other out!

Jacquelyn had spotted our mannequins in the shop front at In Stitches. She explained to Shirley, that she is a mature student doing a City and Guilds Textile Course and asked if they wouldn’t mind letting her borrow one to display a jacket she had made.

After being delighted by the loan of the mannequin Jacquilyn noticed that it could use a bit of a revamp. As a thank you to the store she offered to refurbish not just the one she used but all of our mannequins!

Silver is before and Beige is after!

As you can see she did an incredible job! She used paint to create an amazing and uniform effect. All of the trainees thought the mannequins look brilliant! You can see below that the trainees have been using all the mannequins to show off our stock! A big thank you to Jacquelyn for all of her hard work and In Stitches wants to wish her luck with the rest of her course!
