Take a Sewing Room Tour
No fancy stitches, just basic sewing at the Central Iowa Chapter Mending Clinic. Community members came in with ripped, worn, and ill-fitting clothing. Guild members busily fixed ripped seams, sewed on buttons, glued leather coats, patched knees, replaced zippers, shortened pants, and more. Tricky repairs presented some sewing challenges. Together, guild members found solutions and taught each other new skills. Mending kits were given out, and basic sewing skills were taught to anyone interested. A great community service project, revitalizing clothing and mending skills.
