Thanks to the incredible success of «Learn to Mend» in January we're putting on another one. Please click on the ticket link above to save yourself a spot on our Eventbrite page!
Repair don't toss! Swap, don’t shop!
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. Drinks and snacks provided.
First come, first fixed! All welcome to take part in the swap and watch demonstrations, without bringing items to fix. Tickets not required to take part in the swap, only if you want to bring an item to learn to mend.
Due to limited space, please bring only one item per person. Remember to bring the right color of thread or yard, buttons, zippers and any other replacement parts you might need to mend your item!
A collaborative, and free, event by Sustainable Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Tool Library!
Donations to either, or both, organizations welcome, but not required.
