We are limited only by our imaginations. We have fun. We work with whatever we have, with all age and experience levels. We adapt, refashion, repurpose, restyle and reinvent using no-sewing, hand-sewing and machine-sewing techniques. We prefer to work with natural fibres.

Textile Beat workshops


  • Our clothing story – covers ethical dilemmas

Jane Milburn presenting


We influence and inspire change by campaigning for a more sustainable clothing culture.        We provide writing, editing and strategic communications advice for clients.

We create skirts and shifts from favourite clothes that are no longer useful as they are.             History skirts/shifts – made with a story of recreation from bits/pieces of favs/castoffs               Memory skirt/shift/quilts – made as a wearable memory, from clothes of a loved one gone.


Textile Beat values authenticity, individuality, autonomy and purpose. We are committed to inspiring creative reuse of natural fibres, sharing traditional skills of sewing, mending and modifying. Our work aligns with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: goal for sustainable consumption and production patterns.Contact Jane on 0408 787 964 or jane@textilebeat.com
