Fix-It Fair: Stitch it, Don’t Ditch it!

Come join the Center for Sustainability at our “Fix-It Fair: Stitch it, Don’t Ditch it!” event on Wednesday, September 23, 2020. We will have skilled community members from AQ and beyond helping students, staff, and faculty fix damaged clothing items. The event will highlight and teach basic clothing repair skills like simple sewing, hemming, patching, fixing buttons, etc. The "Fix-It Fair" aims to reduce apparel waste. Instead of throwing items away, people can give their clothes new life by getting free repairs and learning to do repairs, in hopes of prolonging the life of clothing! Each person in attendance will also leave with a free sewing kit for future repair needs. Volunteers with clothing repair experience are still needed: contact Vanessa Heylmun vsh001@aquinas.edu if interested!
