Toronto Clothing Repairathon is excited to be back at Withrow Park Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 10. Volunteers will be fixing and mending clothes for free from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
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 and help you mend your clothes. First come, first served so arrive early to ensure your repair can be done!
Maximum two items per person to ensure we help as many people as possible. And keep in mind, that we don’t do clothing 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? Our volunteer app is temporarily unavailable but feel free to join our Facebook event, or just come, sit down and lend a hand.
