Give your well-loved wardrobe favorites a new life! Join us at our sustainability-centered SocialJam, hosted by Nica Rabinowitz of Fiberhouse Collective, where you'll develop skills to repair and refresh your worn-out garments while empowering yourself to rethink your relationship with clothing and the environment through hands-on making. Use these skills to learn to listen to the fabric and breathe new life into tired garments.  

In this SocialJam we will cover patch making and stitching techniques. Items you are encouraged to bring to this class:

  • Overly-loved pieces of clothing with holes or stains

  • Clothing you want to change, enhance, or embellish

  • Meaningful scraps of fabric that you may want to incorporate into existing garments

What we will have:

  • Fabric scraps 

  • Tools for stitching (pins, thread, needles, embroidery hoops)

We are BYOB friendly, so feel free to bring a beverage of your choice (and maybe even your bestie). SocialJams are open gatherings; a modern-day craft-circle where you can come together with other Jammers to work on craft projects.
