Bring life back to your spring wardrobe by having your clothes mended by our group of talented volunteers. Tear in your jeans? Missing a button? We’ll repair it for free. Come by with clean clothing in need of small repairs, not more than 2-3 per person.

Want to join us? We’re always looking for volunteers to lend a hand repairing by hand or machine. No minimum experience necessary. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up with our event planning app. You can also join the Repairathon group on Google Groups for our general discussion.
