Toronto Clothing Repairathon is excited to be a part of the Junction Farmers’ Market Zero Waste campaign (2960 Dundas St West) on Saturday, October 20. Volunteers will be mending clothes free of charge between 9am – 1pm. 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. Hope to see you there!
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.
I am planning to volunteer for the first time but I have questions about supplies and equipment: is everything provided or should I bring my own needles/thread/machine?
Nancy, everything is provided. You can bring your own things if you like, but you may want to label them so they don’t get mixed up.
