The City of Surrey is looking to become the first community in Canada to be zero waste, where at least 90% of residential waste is diverted from landfill, and where products and materials are reused, repaired, and recovered. Help divert textiles from ending up in the landfill and bring repair skills back to use with patches, darning and stitches. Bring 1-3 clothing items needing repair and learn how to repair them yourself with the support of Frameworq’s expert menders! They provide the supplies and sharing skills to fix your favorite garments. Don’t have anything to fix? Bring any clean, unwanted clothes for the Clothing Swap!
The Rethink Waste Sewing Workshop & Clothing Swap will be open in City Hall Atrium from 11am - 6pm.
What is a Clothing Fix-It?
A Clothing Fix-it is a community building event where the participants are invited to bring their clothes that needing a repair. With the help of the sewing experts and sewing supplies provided by Frameworq, participants get their clothes mended, darned and stitched.
Frameworq Education Society is a non-profit organization with the mission to overthrow a throwaway culture, bring back repair skills, build resilient communities, and divert textile waste from the landfill.
