Learn to mend with Austin Resource Recovery

Monday, August 10, 2020 by Tai Moses

If you’ve never tried your hand at sewing and you have a growing pile of garments needing mending, Austin Resource Recovery has a virtual workshop designed just for you. This latest installment of the Fix-It at Home series, held today from 4-5 p.m., is aimed at teaching basic sewing and mending skills, “even if you only have a mending kit from a hotel.” According to ARR, “These techniques will equip you with skills for your own mending endeavors, so you can repair that tear in your favorite shirt or replace a missing button. No machine required!” The class is taught by Kat Davis, “a former theatrical costumer who has sewn, altered and repaired clothing for over 15 years.” The workshop is hosted on WebEx. Register for the class and find out what materials you’ll need to have on hand on Eventbrite.
