Every 3rd Sunday join our mending and upcycling specialists at Firehouse Art Center to extend the life of your favorite clothes.

Come swap sewing stories, tips, tricks, and misadventures while you make a dent in your “to mend” pile or start that sewing project you’ve been dreaming of. Work on whatever you want, whether it’s altering something to fit better, mending your most loved garments, creating something new from a pattern, or upcycling something old into something new.

Our mission is to help you extend the life of the textiles you already own and our sewing experts will be there to answer questions, offer advice, and share tools.

Feel free to bring snacks and beverages. Just make sure they don’t end up on anyone’s projects.

Space is limited, please register in advance.

We kindly ask that if you are able, to pay what you can so our sewing specialists can continue to provide their time and tools.
