“Repair Your Wear” Workshop

Sorry, this workshop is now full.

Our new FREE  “Repair your Wear” workshop will give you the skills to repair your gently loved garments, saving you time and money.

In this hands-on, clothing fix-it workshop, you will learn easy methods to repair your garments. Repairing your clothes will help you save money, extend the life of your favourite garments and you’ll be keeping textiles out of the landfill! Depending on the time available, expect to learn: how to sew on buttons, repair frayed cuffs, hemming methods, adding patches, re-stitching and re-enforcing open seams, darning (hand and machine), replacing broken zippers, repairing pocket holes and decorative applique or embroidery to conceal holes and tears.
