Mend & Measure: Save money, save your favorite garment, consume less

Instructors Nicole Miller, owner of Blackbird and The Field House; Lauren Wang, product design at Blackbird; and Sue Weibler, Blackbird Candy Shoppe gal.

In the old U.S. Navy, sailors had one day a month called Mend & Measure where they were excused from their duties to launder and repair their clothes. Bring tattered socks or jeans, buttonless shirts or anything that needs a mend, and the Blackbird team will show how to, and help, repair those favorite duds. Attendees can bring mending supplies or share ones brought by the instructors.
