Toronto Clothing Repairathon runs free public events, where anyone can bring clothing to be repaired by volunteers. Our goal is to encourage the teaching and learning of repair skills, to reduce waste and keep clothing out of the garbage. We also want to build community and have fun!
Bring those holey sweaters, ripped jeans and shirts missing a button, and our volunteers will do their best to repair them. If you’d like to learn to do repairs, volunteers will be happy to show you how and help you mend your clothes.
- Items for repair must be dropped off by 11:30am. This is to allow volunteers enough time to make the repairs.
- No alterations, just repairs.
- A maximum of two items per person present.
(Meaning if you bring something for your friend or family member then that will count towards your 2 items).
Zipper replacements may not be possible at every event, as we are dependent on the skill levels of the volunteers that day, as well as, the time available to complete the repair.
Want to volunteer your sewing skills? Visit Repairathon.com!
Dates: July 6, August 10, September 7, and October 5
Times: 10 am to 1pm – Rain or shine!
