Description

Next Saturday 19 October is the International Repair Day, and we would love to get hands-on for hand sewing repairs with some textiles (of course fashion if you want!), for a couple of hours that morning.

We'll be there again in January and will keep adding some other dates inviting everyone to get into basic hand sewing.


The plan is sharing skills at the time we repair. Initially, working on broken stitches, damaged fabric on garments, home textiles, tote bags..., holes on t-shirts, sweaters or even socks... Also thinking about solutions or discussing ideas.
Welcome then if you need some help and great also if you have the skills and can give a hand to others ;)

To help organise the session, we have set three RSVP options with time slots to choose.


Huge thank you here to MakerBay Central for contributing with their venue.
