FREE FixIt Clinic: Fabric and Clothing

October 3, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Come to Austin’s first Fixit Clinic!

Missing buttons, fallen hem, a tear in your favorite outfit? Bring it to Recycled Reads on Saturday, October 3rd from 12-3 pm where volunteer coaches with clothing repair know-how will be available to help you fix your item.

Fixit Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on disassembly, troubleshooting and repair knowledge. Fixit 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.

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

What to bring: Your broken stuff and a desire to learn how to fix it! If you have the missing button, a fabric patch, matching thread, etc. please bring it with you. Sewing machines and hand tools will be available for you to use, but you can also bring your own machines and tools if you prefer.

Interested in being a volunteer coach? Contact us at laura.kraus@austintexas.gov.
