In honor of Earth Day, join us for an afternoon Clothes Mending + Altering workshop at Slow North's shop featuring local artist Carol Hargus of Soul Studio.

In this beginner-friendly workshop, you'll learn hand-sewing techniques to keep all your favorite closet staples in great shape. Bring your own worse-for-wear pieces from home to learn the four basic stiches and pickup skills like how to repair holes, how to hem, how to sew buttons on properly, and more!
