Scrub Hub was founded in early 2020 by a passionate team of sewing experts who wanted to help their community. This network sewed scrubs for the NHS to fill a protective clothing shortage. Although the teams have since wound down production, the Scrub Hub site lives on and has morphed into a place where a team of expert writers and editors in sewing remain committed to producing helpful articles on all things sewing. Further, the team has expanded to include advice on laundry and cleaning for managing fabrics and maintaining a high level of cleanliness.

Project ‘Scrub Hub’ was born when hundreds of talented seamsters heard the rallying call and reached out to their own communities. By working ‘separately, yet together’ during the lockdown, they used their hands and hearts to make tens of thousands of desperately needed uniforms for NHS workers. These Scrubs were made with love throughout the process, which is meant for the world and wonderful NHS staff. Choices were made about fabric and sewing techniques, meaning they were locally made, hard-wearing, and with as minimal impact as possible.
