#5: Craft & Thrift with Amy Dyce

Welcome to the fifth episode of CYT, this time featuring a conversation with Amy Dyce, a crafty, thrifty environmentally-minded woman who has a small business called Craft & Thrift. Through her Etsy shop she sells thrifted, vintage and deadstock fabric, along with other related sewing products. Amy was so generous with her time that we ended up chatting and recording for over two hours! Because of that, we will release two episodes that include different parts of our conversation. This first half focuses on her business, including how she pivoted from selling tea cosies to deadstock fabric, her (possibly haunted) storage unit and about the shipping containers full of 90s fabric that pushed her business to the next level.  The scrap-busting related challenges are: #so50sustainablesewing created by @judithrosalind and hosted by @sewover50 #recyclingremnants created by @elleandthestitches Lou Box Top pattern by Sew DIY HERE Lou Box Top kits from Craft & Thrift HERE Find my guest Amy on Instagram @craftandthrift, her website is HERE and Etsy shop is HERE The Sew Your Own Undies kits we collaborated on HERE Jen Gale from @sustainableish’s powerful post HERE
