Repair it and wear it mending club

Mending worn-out clothes to give them new life!

The Mending Club is hosted by Isabel Wolfs & Sarah Barchichat at Amsterdam House of Arts & Crafts, in the heart of the city. During this workshop the simple act of repairing clothing transcends the realm of needle and thread; it becomes a powerful statement of sustainability, mindfulness, and community.

As we gather to mend frayed seams and patch worn fabrics, we weave together more than just threads – we mend the very fabric of our values. Each stitch symbolizes a commitment to reducing waste and embracing a more sustainable lifestyle, breathing new life into garments that might have otherwise been discarded. Beyond the practical skill of sewing, the Mending Club fosters a sense of connection, as participants share stories, tips, and laughter, creating a supportive community that values the art of restoration. In a world often characterized by fast fashion and disposable culture, our Mending Club stands as a beacon of meaningful change, proving that a single stitch can unravel a tapestry of positive transformation.

  • What to bring?
    Please bring yourself (and maybe a friend) and an object you wish to mend.
    Small mending projects would be ideal such as changing a button, hemming a pair of pants or skirt, or repairing a rip in your favorite jeans.
  • What’s included?
    We will be supplying you with the basics for mending such as needles, threads and sewing machines and Isabel and Sarah will be on hand to assist you if needed.
