#StitchItDontDitchIt – Mend In – SA

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Register here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/stitchitdontditchit-mend-in/

Join us for some regenerative mending in front of H&M, the world’s second largest clothing manufacturer. We will be mending old clothes, sewing patches and chatting to passersby.

You’re welcome to join us, all ages, all abilities. Come and learn how to thread a needle and sew on a button if you like.

If you have them please bring along the following:
– Folding Chair
– Sewing Needle, Thread and Buttons
– Clothes to mend
– Drink

Not sure why clothes matter in terms of climate crisis? There is a great explainer from the Climate Council here.

Fast fashion needs to slow down for the climate

This action is part #StitchItDontDitchIt that has started in the UK. They too are having a day of mending on June 15th. Feel free to make a sign of the hashtag #StitchItDontDitchIt for the back of your chain.
