Following on from the popularity of our Mending Circles in 2018, we are making it a regular fixture on the BTQ calendar!
Meet • Other members of Bristol’s Textile Community
Make • New Contacts, Share Skills and start New Projects
Mend • Bring a beloved piece of clothing to mend (*no experience needed, we can help each other)
We continually meet new members of the textile community and we would love to find a way to join up the dots and create a true network for different skills so people can share their knowledge, help each other and collaborate and what better way to do that than by sitting round a table, sewing, chatting a having a drink!
A regular textile get together and mending circle. . . An informal gathering and opportunity for different local makers to talk about what they do, share their work and make any shout outs that they need for support, help and/or collaboration
Bring some pieces to mend with your sewing bits and bobs, there will be people on hand to offer guidance and advice.
