Anti-Racism & Anti-Discrimination Policy

We recognise that discrimination against black and other minority groups is still happening today. Sew Me Sunshine is committed to being an anti-racist and anti-discriminative business; we are always willing to listen and to learn. 

These are just some of the things Sew Me Sunshine is going to do:

  • We will continue to share anti-racism and discrimination resources within the Sew Me Sunshine team in order to continue to educate our team on anti-racism & anti-discrimination
  • Moving forward we will be providing each maker who provides a blog post for Sew Me Sunshine with a £50 voucher as payment for their blog post, as well as providing the fabric that is required for their post. We hope by doing this it will enable our blog to celebrate all the incredible talent in our sewing community that truly reflects all makers and gives a platform to marginalised voices

  • In the future we hope to grow our Sew Me Sunshine team and we will ensure that any recruitment processes we use take into account diversity

  • We will make sure that we reflect the true diversity of our sewing community when it comes to sharing our amazing makers across our social media platforms

  • We will continue to stock sewing patterns, haberdashery and sewing themed gifts from small businesses in the black and minority communities and from those businesses that are also actively making their businesses inclusive to all. We’ll also look to offer opportunities to the new brands we discover in these communities too in order to stock the most diverse range of designers and makers possible

  • Sew Me Sunshine is always looking to collaborate with sewing businesses, specifically those businesses in the black and minority communities. Whether that be by promoting businesses using our social media platforms or inviting businesses to share our space during open days

  • Sew Me Sunshine will be donating 1% of our monthly profit on a monthly basis to a rotating non-profit organisation. We will be prioritising non-profit organisations that support black and ethnic minority communities, as well as other marginalised groups. We would love to hear your suggestions on this
We welcome any feedback or recommendations.
