Darn it!

Breaking news…

This Saturday we will have Tom of Holland (one of our repair expert volunteers) joining us to share his knitwear darning expertise:

If you have socks with holes in, jumpers with worn out elbows or clothes that moths have been munching bring them along and learn how to darn them better.

We will have some needles, threads and darning mushrooms at the cafe but if you have any you can bring that would be most helpful.

The cafe will run from 11am-3pm this Saturday (23rd February) at Bom-Banes (24 George St  Kemp Town, Brighton BN2 1RH).

We will also have sewing machines set up for those who would prefer and you are welcome to bring other items to repair by hand.

If you would like to become one of our repair expert volunteers please email us via brightonrepaircafe@gmail.com
