Are you a scrubber? A home sewer?
There is a huge shortage of PPE and scrubs across the nation and last week we were asked to print scrubs patterns for a local group in Warwickshire called the ‘Barford Scrubbers’ (yes, we love the name) and orders have now started coming in from way down in Essex! Members of regional groups across the country are sewing scrubs, bags and headbands for NHS workers, but need assistance to print the large format patterns required, particularly for the scrubs.
If you have the skills and want to sew for the NHS, but don’t have a pattern, we can help!
If you need a pattern, Sew Different have offered their UNISEX SCRUB PATTERN for free. See below for how to obtain the pattern files and print it with us:
The pattern includes TOP & TROUSERS in size S, M, L, XL, XXL, which we will print as 2 A0 files onto 75gsm paper and there is also an additional 4-page instruction booklet.
HOW TO OBTAIN A FREE PATTERN?
You can go to the Sew Different website here: https://sewdifferent.co.uk/scrubs-paper-pattern-not-for-profit/ and download the files.
CONDITIONS OF USE: Please note that while this pattern is free, the copyright is retained by Sew Different and you are NOT AUTHORISED to post the PDF files on other websites or Facebook pages. Please always link to the Sew Different website.
Once downloaded send the PDF of the A0 patterns and the A4 booklet to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will print the 2 page A0 pattern sheets on 75gsm paper plus the instructions on A4 and send them to you the next day, so you should receive your pattern pack within 2-3 days.
We are also happy to print your own or any other patterns. Just email us on email@example.com
If you haven’t already found them, take a look at the Facebook group ‘For the Love of Scrubs’, where you can find tips and info on sewing techniques and the many locations and individuals in urgent need of scrubs.
