I’m excited to announce that the next Clothing Repairathon will be at St Lawrence Market, on Saturday September 28th. If you’ve got a dress with a missing button or a t-shirt with a hole, bring it on down and we’ll get that fixed up.
We’ll be there from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Specifically, we’ll be in the North building, next to the stage and close to the North Market Administration Office, right across from the Rowe Farms stall.
If you are interested in volunteering (with or without sewing experience), please let us know, we’re always looking for more help.
This event is also on Facebook.
Other news of note:
- I’ve added a new page to our website to provide information for venues and events who would like to host a Repairathon
- Our friends at the Repair Café posted a recap of their August event. Don’t forget that their upcoming events are September 14 and October 19
- In addition to the Toronto Tool library fundraising for a second tool library (and makerspace), Hacklab.to, one of Toronto’s existing maker spaces is also fundraising for their move to a larger location. Both organizations help more people have access to tools, machinery, and knowledge, for repair and otherwise.
