If reducing your impact on the environment or saving money were on your resolutions list for 2019, start looking at how you can 'make do and mend' at home, starting with your wardrobe.
Textile waste is a huge contributor to climate change: the resources used to make our clothes are huge (for example, it takes an incredible 2700 liters of water to make a single cotton t-shirt), and when clothes are thrown away to make room for the new ones, there's a further impact; 235 million items of clothing were sent to landfill last year.
So, if you've got a split seam, a tear, or a missing button, bring your loved clothes along to this stitching lunchtime session. Learn how to reattach buttons, mend seams, darn moth holes, and much more. All materials (needles, threads, patches) are provided, just bring your clothes along, and leave with a new skill and them looking like new.
There will be a light lunch provided, just bring that jumper with the hole that's been at the bottom of your drawer for six months.
