Next workshop:

deep cove cultural centre

4360 Gallant Ave

Deep Cove

Date: Saturday, March 16th

Time: 10:00AM - 12:00PM

Come mend something with us! We’ll have an assortment of mending supplies on hand, but encourage you to bring supplies (like needle, thread, patches) if you have them. An ironing board and sewing machine will be available.

We’re covering the cost of renting the space (which supports the Art Gallery) so there is no cost to attend. You’re welcome to bring your own snacks and reusable mugs filled with tea or coffee.

 
 

 

LOVE It. CARE FOR It. REPAIR iT.

The world can’t continue to extract raw materials, manufacture and transport “stuff” and then send it to landfill (or the ocean.) Our planet (and future generations) shouldn’t pay the price for our poor shopping habits.

Our goal is to create a mending movement in Deep Cove. If you’ve got mending skills (you know you do!), please pop by the shop and show ‘n tell. Better yet, join us for one of our mending workshops and share your skills. Sharing is caring y’all!

MENDING RESOURCES

Dog jump up and put a hole in your sweater? Socks missing a heel? Button popped off of your blouse? Consider mending rather than donating. If you can’t make it to one of our mending events, here are some resources to have that sock fixed in no time.
