Refugee Artisan Initiative – Mending Fair

June 1 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Refugee Artisan Initiative is now offering free mending services to the public. This exciting new project aims to reduce landfill waste, pass on vital skills, and create equitable income for artisans.

This spring’s fairs will offer four mending services:

  • Sewing a button
  • Sewing an open seam
  • Patching a hole
  • Hemming pants

Come visit the Maker Space at 12337 Lake City Way NE during a fair, and you’ll have a chance to watch and learn as artisans mend and repair clothing—like a pair of jeans or a favorite shirt—for yourself or others.

You’re welcome to bring up to three articles of clothing. Each visitor will receive up to 20 minutes of free mending service. Mending is first come, first serve (no advance registration required.) Please plan to stay at RAI while your item is mended.
