Come and learn how to mend your clothes in this hands-on session with volunteers from Everyone Needs Pockets Network

Holes in your clothes? Button fallen off? Tear in a favourite shirt? Things lying about waiting for that mend? Here’s your opportunity to fix them in this hands-on session.

Talented volunteer stitchers and menders from the Everyone Needs Pockets Textile Reuse Network can help work out what needs doing and how to fix it, supporting you in mending your clothes.

Come and enjoy a relaxed social atmosphere of mending your clothes, with free drinks and biscuits to help! These sessions are designed for all abilities and many different kinds of repairs. Please answer the questions as you book in, so we know how best to help you!

What we can help with:

  • Buttons and fasteners
  • Taking up hems and some fitting adjustments
  • Mending and darning holes
  • Advice on how you might repair a piece of clothing, including zips.
