Is your favorite stuffed friend having a rough time recovering from a bad tumble or a playdate with the family dog? Bring them in and we'll do our best to get them patched up and back in action. Learn darning and hand-mending techniques for flat or filled items. Children are welcome with adult supervision.
Have sewing resources to share? Add spare material, surplus thread and other craft items to the community resource table and take home something you need. Share and trade with your community. Free to attend; registration required.
Repair & Reuse workshops are building a culture of repair, working to transform our culture into one that repairs more readily than it purchases, to create a more sustainable community. Workshops on mending, repairing outdoor gear, upcycling and object fixing, along with the sharing of how-to skillsets, help remind all of us that low-cost repairs help the climate. Themes change monthly.
