Bring your much loved clothing for some hand stitched redemption

In this Fast Fashion world mending has become a little bit of a revolutionary act. Like the Japanese art of Kintsugi (repairing broken pottery with seams of gold) rendering the broken article more beautiful. So too does mending, expressing a fondness and caring for our clothes (and a little anti-establishment)

Bring your much loved clothing for some hand stitched redemption.

Each month we will have a guest mender to throw in some new skills.
