Saturday, April 20, 2019 - 1:30am to 3:30pm

Clothing Fix-it Clinic

Don't toss out your clothes just because there's a little something wrong. Bring them to the fix-it clinic and give them new life. Fix-It Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on repair knowledge. Missing a button? We've replacements to help you get buttoned-up. Hem coming down? We'll help you raise it up again. Holes or rips? You'll be hole-free in no time. Now's the time to get the help and tools you need to put your clothing back in working condition again.

Fix-It Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on disassembly, troubleshooting and repair knowledge. Fix-It Clinic attendees are expected to be active participants in trying to fix their items with guidance from our coaches. Attendees should plan to stay with their items. Dropping off of items for repair will not be permitted.

What should I bring?

Your broken stuff and a desire to learn how to fix it! However, please note that we have a limit of two items for repair per visit. Sewing machines and other tools will be available for you to use, but you can also bring your own machines and tools if you prefer. If you have a replacement part, missing button, a fabric patch, matching thread, etc. that you suspect might help you fix your item, please bring it with you. At this Fix-It Clinic, you can learn how to fix clothing and textiles.

Who can attend?

All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

How do I sign up?

Choose up to two tickets based on the item(s) you plan to bring and when you'll arrive. If the ticket you are looking for is sold out, though we can't guarantee availability of our coaches, you are welcome to come to the clinic with your item and we will do our best to accommodate you. Tickets are available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/clothing-fix-it-clinic-tickets-59094221407
