Stitching Exchange participants will offer simple clothing repairs while patrons shop.
Repairs include: buttons replaced, small tears mended, hemming, and simple tailoring. Modest donations happily accepted and will go directly to the immigrant woman who completes the repairs.
Stitching Exchange is an ongoing artist project for immigrants learning English. We focus on learning new sewing skills and exchanging sewing traditions from around the world, while practicing speaking English. Through our informal “sewing bees,” we foster creativity, build community, and cultivate friendships. For more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
A ticket to this event does not guarantee a spot on the mending list, mending appointments are first come, first served!
