First came the Change Maker Pin Badge, and now we have the Change Maker Embroidery Pattern, Portia’s vision for the initiative is to make change through the power of making so it made sense that our products for this range would include things that you can make.
We have designed a simple, strong line work version of our Change Maker logo so you can now embroider it!

The symbol of a fist clenched around a pair of scissors has long been the logo of The Refashioners movement. A community challenge launched in 2011 by Portia Lawrie to challenge and change the way we look at old clothes and textile waste.
It has always symbolised our coming together as a community; to challenge ourselves to make changes. To how we think, and what we do, in our making practice.
Now it is evolving. Now it has a name all it’s own
The Change Maker pin is the first of a new product range. A collaboration between Portia and Samantha; and the first part of a brand new initiative to tap into the power of the maker community, to make change.
As makers, we have the ability to imagine something and make it real. As a community, that power is multiplied. The Change Maker pin is the first in a line of products aimed at reflecting and harnessing the power of makers and making to promote positive change in society through community fundraising.
100% of all Change Maker profits are donated monthly to a nominated charity with an emphasis on tackling social and environmental injustice.
Making is powerful.
Make the change you wish to see in the world.
We aim to use 100% recycled and recyclable materials where possible in the packaging of these and any other Change Maker products.
We are working with companies both based and manufacturing products within the UK.
