In the novel Brave New World, the government claims that “ending is better than mending,” but you’re too smart for those lies!

In this class, you’ll fight the forces of fast fashion by learning how to attach a button, darn a hole, and other basic hand sewing techniques to make your clothes last longer. Come save both your wallet and the environment, no sewing machine needed.

We will provide materials, but feel free to bring your own if there is an item on which you’d like mending advice.
