The learning to mend part of this event is now full. You may still come by to swap clothes/yarn/fabric and we’re still looking for volunteer menders!

Repair, don’t toss! Swap, don’t shop!

Evening of January 29, 2018, at Makerspace North at 250 City Centre Ave, Bay 216.

Bring clothing or textiles in need of repair, and learn how to sew, darn, felt, and patch your way back to useable clothing through one on one and hands-on demonstrations. Browse used clothing and yarn/knitting supplies while you wait at the concurrent swap event, and bring your own unwanted items to contribute. Hot drinks and snacks provided.

First come, first fixed! All welcome to take part in the swap and watch demonstrations, without bringing items to fix. Limited capacity, please see ticket link above.

Tickets not required if you're just coming for the swap!

Swap rules:
— no limit to how much you can bring or take, but no hoarding of items or taking items to sell later.
— items will be loosely sorted into type, youth/children, infants, accessories, footwear, linens/housewear and outerwear – please help us out by place your items accordingly when you arrive or directing one of the volunteers as to where items belong.
— items should be relatively clean – from storage is okay as long as there are no strong odours or other storage related issues.
— damaged items are okay to bring.
— leftover items will be repurposed or donated to charity.
— bring a bag or two (or more) to take home your items.
— bags can be left in the designated “claimed” area during browsing/repairs – do not remove items from other people’s bags.
— if you’re bringing things to swap, come at 6:30pm to organize your clothes/yarn.
