Thank you so much for your continued support of The Bobbin. I believe that The Bobbin's mission of sustainability, skill building and slow fashion is only beginning to reach our collective consciousness. As we Vermonters have embraced the slow food/local food movement; we are now thinking more about where our food comes from and under what conditions it is produced.
It is now time to think about where our clothing comes from and what practices we are supporting when we purchase fast fashion.
