Scrapadoo – upcycling clothing into quirky items for you and your home. Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming unwanted products into new products of better quality or for better environmental value. Hi, my name is Hilary Belshaw and I run ScrapAdoo upcyling in Northwich. My little ScrapAdoo business was born in January 2020, 3 months before lockdown1. I have a lovely studio in a small outbuilding at our farmhouse in Northwich. I scoured the charity shops for suitable clothing and bedding to use in my workshops and bought 4 sewing machines. For the past two years I have been running sewing workshops using upcyled fabrics for beginners and improvers. During lockdown people got their dusty sewing machines out of the attic and realised they couldn’t use them. It’s so rewarding to help people’s sewing confidence increase and tame their sewing machine. I show people how to turn old shirts into plant pots, bedding into bunting and jeans into bags. This prevents the old fabrics going into landfill. I also run natural wreath and table decoration workshops at Christmas.
