Description

Come along to our RepairEd Just Sew Session! Repairing rather than buying new is a great way to take climate action in your own life – and learn new skills along the way. 

Book your spot and bring along 1-2 clothing or lightweight household items (cushion covers etc) for repair – all needles, thread, and sewing machines will be supplied. We will supply a selection of patches and buttons, but you are also welcome to bring your own if you have something specific in mind. 

Our skilled volunteers will be here to assist you with fixes such as missing buttons, tears, holes, hemming, and basic alterations. There will also be a DIY table for those who are confident at sewing alone but may not have access to a machine at home. 

These sessions will be held at Sustainability Trust on the first Saturday of every month, from 1-4 pm.

RepairED is a Poneke / Wellington repair programme that connects communities to climate change actions they can take to mitigate Climate Change through the repair of clothing, textiles, small appliances, and electronics - keeping them in circulation and out of landfill.

We run repair cafes, textile repair sessions called Just Sew, electronic repair sessions. We have a sewing machine and repair kit library for our community.
