Repairathon April 14 at Toronto Public Library

Toronto Clothing Repairathon is excited to have its first event at the Toronto Public Library! We’ll be at the Lillian H. Smith branch (239 College Street) on Saturday, April 14 from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. Get your clothes mended for free by friendly volunteers – no library card needed!

Find those ripped jeans, that coat missing a button and those holey socks! Volunteers will be happy to repair them. Maximum two (2) items per person to ensure we help as many people as possible. And keep in mind, that we don’t do alterations, just repairs. Zipper replacements may not be possible at every event as we are dependant 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? Please sign up at app.repairathon.com to hear about upcoming events throughout 2018.
