Making it Matter

Mary Jane Baxter is an author, maker and social entrepreneur with a passion for turning trash into treasure. Whether she’s stitching a dress from a pair of old curtains or revamping a shop on a shoestring budget, she has a passion for re-using existing resources wherever possible. A former BBC correspondent, she is also a qualified milliner, and once swapped a night in a hotel for handmade hat whilst filming for BBC’s Newsnight programme! Mary Jane’s new book Sew on the Go, will be published in Spring 2021 by Unbound.
