    Are you available to speak at group meetings or a social event?
    If so would there be a fee and at what cost?

  2. Hi Marie, yes I speak at events and the cost is variable depending on group involved

  3. Heard you on 774. Important work. Well done. So much waste of resources in short term use of manufactured goods such as clothing. Also there is huge environmental damage from textile production in some countries.

    Thanks for your relevant and inspiring presentation at the National HEIA conference in Melbourne and congratulations on your presentation on ABC 24 this morning. I am going to set myself a challenge, change my ways and modify that year 9 course! Many thanks Jane.

  6. Catherine, thanks for lovely feedback and for affirming my work. Exciting that you are making changes for yourself and students too. 🙂

  7. Hi Jane. I read your story in the HonestlyWoman mag and was inspired. I facilitate a home-based childcare in Samford Valley and this year wanting to introduce more of the home arts to the children. So, this term we have decided to bring out the sewing machine and so far have made pencil cases and now deciding to get a bit more serious with some ‘real’ clothing, hoping to inspire the little ones with the possibility of one day making their own clothing. So we have begun with Pippy Longstocking aprons size 3 – 5 years. We shall sell them at our local school shop…small beginnings. Thanks for sharing your story and shall share it with my friends.
    Would love to come to one of your talks one day.

    Hi Vicki, Thanks for lovely feedback. It is great you are showing children how to make things for themselves. Global industrial supply chains might be efficient, but there are downsides we are only beginning to appreciate – and one downside is the loss of skills and satisfaction from doing it for yourself. Hope to catch up with you sometime too :). Regards

  9. Hi Jane
    Your dedication to sustainability is inspirational! I found your post, ‘Rethinking clothing culture and waste’, to be really informative. I’ve always loved clothing and design, and studied textiles in high school. Your post reminded me how fun it can be to fix up and customise clothes which have been pushed to the back of my closet. But not only is it a great creative outlet, its also great for fashion sustainability.
    I would love it if you checked out my new blog on adopting sustainable fashion practises through clothes up-cycling. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
    Many thanks,
    Georgia Donaldson

  10. Good luck with the blog Georgia, it looks great! Thanks for lovely feedback too. 🙂
