I plan to use any extra money on setting up an official website for Filthy Squirrel Clothing that will be linked in with UKcreate. This would be such a positive and beneficial aspect for my business and community project and would give a more professional aspect too it.


The funding through Crowdfunder would help to maintain Filthy Squirrel Clothing for the future, due to the recession the label was effected quite substantially and it has been a long and hard process in order to keep the label up and running. Many years of preperation and community based projects are what helped start my organization and it would be a shame to loose all of the hard work that has been put into it by me and my team. I run a fashion studio based in Bristol, where I give individuals the chance to come into my studio and I can teach them pattern cutting, basic production and social media skills. Eventually I would like to start employing people with paid work from my local community to help with the running of my label (i.e machinists and pattern cutters). I also run community based workshops within schools and youth groups, that goes under the name UKcreate for underprivileged kids across the UK. Within the workshops people can learn how to up-cycle items of clothing, customize garments and generally learn basic sewing and pattern cutting skills. I feel that the local community benefit greatly from these workshops and they have always had such positive feed back. It's extremely rewarding to help support children and adults with their creative talents. The only way these projects can keep on running is with your help, so please pledge and know that you have helped with the future of two unique projects. Overall the money donated would go towards the purchase of new materials and industrial machinery so I can host larger community groups. Which will in turn help me grow and expand with both the commercial and voluntary sides of the business.
