Sweater Days Events:
Mend and Repair Workshop
Friday, November 30th, 2018
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Wilson Library Room 270
Mend and Repair aims to empower students and staff to fix and continue to use the clothes they already have. This skill can help people feel more confident in what they wear, regardless of whether or not they can afford the latest fashion. It also takes consumers out of the fast fashion industry, one which has terrible working conditions for its employees.
Bring any item of clothing that you would like to mend or learn to mend and experts will teach you how! Come learn new skills, help others or come make something totally new out of your old clothes!
