Well, what a night! We were fortunate to have Cat for Freegle, Mike form Build Brighton, Boo from Space Place and Zosia from Lonely Parts, Raquel Seri from Oliver Heath‘s Studio, plus a whole host of other people with repair skills to offer at Bom-Banes.
Our second trial Repair Cafe was held in Bom-Bane’s again. With new people coming to mend a mixture of things.
As it was 1st December old wool was turned into Christmas pom-poms.
Broken necklaces were remade into bracelets and new necklaces.
Jasmin learnt how to make a bracelet.
…And plans were made for the new year
Our first Repair Cafe took place on 17th November 2012 at the fantastically quirky Bom-Bane’s (http://bom-banes.com/)
The theme was sewing and textile repairs and a good crowd turned up and got busy repairing and chatting. We were pleased to have Cat Fletcher from Freegle (http://www.ilovefreegle.org/) join us for the session.
Qingyun learnt to use a sewing machine for the first time, under Izzie’s guidance.
We are going to use this blog to document the repair cafe as it evolves, please post any feedback, ideas or requests for future suggestions or links to other exciting projects.
