Welcome to the Corner Patch 

 
URGENT APPEAL - 'FOR THE LOVE OF SCRUBS' 
 
Update: The response to this appeal has been overwhelming since I posted it this morning (27th March). I am trying to work through the email offers of help - both to to sew and of donations of money to purchase additional fabric. Thank you all. 
 
Several people have said that they are not able to download and print out a pattern. If this is the case for you then please consider if a family member, friend or neighbour could do this for you. It may be another way in which non-sewers can get involved. 
I am sorry that I cannot supply patterns for everyone. There are various links to patterns on the internet and the hospitals have asked for all sizes from Small to 2XL. We suggest that if you are making multiple sets you make all the same size so that you only need to download one size. 
The fabric has been ordered and is expected early next week. We will then get this out to sewers as quickly as possible. They are suggesting a drawstring tie for the trousers rather than elasticated. Hopefully you will have some tape, bias binding or something suitable to use in your stash. 
Patch pockets on both the trousers and the tops would be useful. 
The hospital ask that the sets are colour coded to indicate the size: a small piece of ribbon or fabric sewn into the back of the neck band and the back of the trouser waistband will be sufficient. The colour code is: 
Small Yellow 
Medium Brown 
Large White 
XL Orange 
2XL Red. 
 
I am just now trying to work out how to get a link to a pattern on this page! Please bear with me! 
 
Thank you again. 
 
 
 
We have been told that scrubs are urgently required by hospitals - including our local hospitals in Stoke and Stafford - and there is a national project to get sewers to make these and donate them. 
A friend and I are funding the purchase of about 200 metres of suitable polycotton fabric in the colours requested locally - blue, green and burgundy - and there are free downloadable patterns available online. The sizes required range from Small through to 2XL. 
 
Can you help? 
I am hoping that the fabric will arrive within the next few days, I will cut it into lengths sufficient to make one set of scrubs and my friend has offered to drop this off to local volunteers.  
This is a desperate situation so expert sewing skills are not required. The pattern is for a simple short sleeved top and drawstring trousers which any competent sewer will be able to complete.  
I know my customers have many skills and this is our chance to do a little to support the NHS staff who are working to save lives.  
 
Please get in touch via email (janet@thecornerpatch.co.uk) to register your interest, how many sets you will attempt and let me know where you live so we can plan a delivery route. We will also collect finished scrubs sets and deliver to the hospital. 
 
We also welcome any contributions towards the purchase of further fabric. £10 would cover the purchase of fabric for one set of scrubs but any amount would be gratefully received. 
 
Thanks 
Janet  
 
Covid 19 Update: 
In light of recent government advice and guidance all workshops at The Corner Patch have been suspended and the shop is now closed to customers until further notice.  
 
We welcome online orders and are happy to discuss your fabric and haberdashery requirements by phone or email. 
 
I am currently at home and plan to go over to the shop to pack and despatch orders just once a week to minimise unnecessary travel. If you live locally we can arrange for me to drop your parcel on your doorstep. Payment can be made online or I will ring you when I am in the shop and I have access to the card machine and take a card payment over the phone. You can also pay by BACS transfer - account details will be supplied on request. 
 
If you have any queries please ring the shop and the answerphone message will direct you to my personal mobile phone.  
Threads and some haberdashery items are not listed in the online shop but are in stock so please ring to discuss your needs.
