Free drop-in session at the Nillumbik Repair Cafe
(no booking required)
Learn basic hand-sewing skills in this fun, supportive session. Held in conjunction with the Nillumbik Repair Cafe!
Call by the Nillumbik Repair Cafe on 13th August, and the team from A Fitting Connection will show you simple techniques for mending your own clothes at home: whether it’s patching a hole, adjusting a hem, or covering a stain. You’ll learn to make easy alterations and extend the life of your wardrobe. For some this will mean learning to sew on a button, and for others it might be tackling decorative techniques like visible mending.
Participants are welcome to bring in their own clothes for mending, or practise on the fabrics provided.
