Join us Nov. 6 from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m. at Artscape Wychwood Barns for a day of free clothing repairs as part of Ecofair at the Barns.
We’re excited to be mending, fixing and repairing clothing for free as part of this eco-friendly event. Extend the life of your wardrobe by bringing us your holey sweaters and coats with missing buttons. Friendly volunteers will be happy to mend them. Please bring no more than 3 items of clean clothing in need of repair.
Love sewing? Join us! We’re always looking for crafty folks to sew on a button or two. Meet other sewers and help the community. Sign up with our event planning app or swing by our table at our next event.
What sort of repairs are done? Just buttons and holes or any hemming done?
Thinking of popping in to the eco fair at wychwood barns but, trying to figure out what sort of mends y’all do.
For the most-part, we do repairs and not alterations. Repair work may end up turning one article of clothing into another, if it’s no longer suited to it’s original purpose. So we typically do not do hemming to shorten pants legs, for instance, but if hemming has come apart, we can fix it.
