Don’t ditch your clothes, get them stitched! Volunteers will be mending clothes for free at the EarlyON Child and Family Centre (38 Regent St.), January 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 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 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 throughout 2018.
Can’t make it? Our friends in Newmarket are hosting a Repair Cafe on January 27. If you’d like to attend or volunteer, more details can be found here.
