The Clothing Repairathon is back after a long winter! We are hosting our first event of the year Sunday, April 26 at Artscape Wychwood Barns as part of Barns Upcycle day. We’ll be repairing clothing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Bring clean clothing in need of small repairs, not more than 2-3 per person, and don’t forget to thank our volunteers.  Repairathon is always looking for more volunteers, so if you’d like to help out, let them know. You don’t need to know how to sew, and it’s not a big commitment.
