Mend in Public Day

April 20 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm

Join Center Goods, fresh cercle, and LexZeroWaste for “Mend In Public Day”, on Saturday, April 20, 11 AM to 3:00 PM in Lexington MA, when we’ll be stitching in protest against disposable fast fashion. Fast fashion is based on cheap clothing produced rapidly by mass-market retailers to keep up with the latest international trends, ultimately encouraging customers to shop continually for new looks. In a world inundated with fashion waste, by mending your clothes, you’ll be part of a global creative action resisting the cycle of excess through repair and reuse.

Find us repairing torn pockets, holes, ripped seams, and replacing buttons, while sparking conversations on how we all can make a difference by wearing our clothes more than we do now, donating what no longer interests us to wear or use, and textile recycling of our worn out items.Prepare your mending pile (or other stitching crafts!), and join us at Center Goods, 30 Waltham Street, Lexington. All skill levels are welcome!
