Join us for a sewing session where you can finally fix that item of clothing or cushion cover you’ve been meaning to get to.
We love repairing things, it’s a great way to reduce the amount of waste we require and produce. By repairing when we can, we’re saving money and the planet at the same time. It’s one of the easiest ways you can take action on climate change. Plus, it’s a great way to upskill.
Book the time slot you want and bring along 1-2 clothing or lightweight household items (cushion covers etc.) for repair. We will supply all needles, thread, sewing machines etc. There will also be a selection of patches and buttons for you to choose from. Please feel free to bring your own if you have something specific in mind.
Our skilled volunteers will assist you with fixes such as missing buttons, tears, holes, hemming, and basic alterations.
There will also be a DIY table for those who are confident at sewing alone but may not have access to a machine at home.
These workshops have been made possible thanks to Wellington City Council Waste Minimisation Fund and Nikau Foundation.
