About this event

"Darn It! I've got a hole in my favorite sweater!

It's a feeling I think we can all relate to.

The weather cools down, you go to the closet only to discover that those pesky wool moths ate your beloved cashmere over the summer. You just realised you've completely worn through the knee of your most comfortable jeans. You see that overnight, an entire network of teeny tiny holes has taken up residence in your favourite tee shirt. So, what do you do? Wear it only around the house to do chores till it can be worn no more? Send it off to the clothing recycling centre? Use it for dust rags? Grab some nylon sewing thread to suture it and hope no one will notice? Just go out and buy something new? To that I say nay! Honour the history of your cherished item and wear your repair work with pride, darn it!

Come join me and learn how to create functional long lasting mends in your favourite garments, safe in the knowledge that you'll also be doing a small rebellious deed that makes our world just that little bit more sustainable."
