Whether you’re a master mender or are just learning the ropes, we invite you to our new pop-up workshop, Make Do & Mend!

Every Tuesday from 12-3pm until December 2019, our friend Patricia will transform our coworker’s living room into a mending space. Equipped with needles, thread, an electric sewing machine, and other mending essentials, not to mention her years of experience in the field, Patricia will be more than happy to help you mend your clothes in need of repair.

A professor at Mount Allison University, Patricia teaches several courses within the discipline of Visual and Material Culture Studies, all of which incorporate ideas of mending as a socially and environmentally beneficial practice throughout history to the present day. In addition to the repair cafés that her classes facilitate on campus during the academic year, Patricia wants to bring the practice of mending as a social activity to the Sackville community!
