Repairathon at Brickworks’ ‘Drop, Swap, and Shop’ April 14th, 2019, 10a-1p

Come one, come all, to our next clothing Repairathon! We’ll be at the Brickworks on Sunday April 14th as part of ‘Drop, Swap, and Shop’! Volunteers will be fixing and mending clothes for free in the TD Future Cities Centre from 10a to 1p. The Evergreen Brickworks is located at 550 Bayview Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 3X8.

Bring those holey sweaters, ripped jeans and shirts missing a button and volunteers will do their best to repair them. If you’d like to learn how to do repairs, volunteers will be happy to show you and help you mend your clothes.

Maximum two items per person to ensure we help as many people as possible. And keep in mind, that we don’t do alterations, just repairs. Zipper replacements may not be possible at every event as we are dependent on the skill levels of the volunteers that day, and the time available to complete the repair.

As a volunteer-driven group, we’re always looking for sewers of all skill levels. We’re a friendly and fun group who loves sharing our skills and giving back to the community. Love to help out? Please sign up at app.repairathon.com to hear about upcoming events throughout 2019.
