Make it a Sustainable Christmas!

2 November 2023

Join us any or all of THREE occasions to help make artistic wrapping paper this month with the #PatchworkCrediton project. Artist Teresa has made festive stencils and prepared a variety of reclaimed papers to make wrapping papers you will want to keep! Drop in to the Sustain-a-bubble on 4 and 18 November between 10-1 to help make lengths, or to buy lengths with a donation. You can also join us on the Town Square during the tree lighting festivities on Saturday 25 November. Find out more from the Courier HERE

Patchwork a meaningful location

In addition to drop in sessions, we are offering three session workshops with our friends at Significant Seams to learn an improvisational way to use fabric to make a personal representation of a favourite place. Participants to date have already selected and begun making patchwork representations of Once Read bookshop and the Community Allotment, and are now organising an exhibition at the library in January to share the stories of beloved mid-Devon locations.

All are welcome to join in. Sessions are open for booking here. You can also request a day-long or multi-session event for a group you assemble by emailing We'd be happy to work to your group's schedule if we can.

Open for volunteering expressions of interest from Duke of Edinburgh award candidates

Sustainable Crediton and Significant Seams are pleased to be welcoming expressions on interest in volunteering from young people. We have a variety of opportunities for young people to get involved. Please email  with your name, age and any particular interests.
