Our regular fixing and mending workshop – Restart/Sewstart – has been getting more and more popular lately.

Whether it’s broken electrical or electronic items that people don’t want to throw away – a favourite bit of clothing or a bags that needs altering or mending – or a sewing machine that someone isn’t sure how to use – more and more people are keen to fix things rather than throw them away.   Our September session had more than twice as many objects bought along to fix – check out all the happy people who were helped out by our volunteers!

But our growing popularity means we need more local fixers!

We’d love to find more people locally who’d like to join in.

Do you know someone who loves tinkering with things and making them work again?  Or someone who is handy with a sewing machine or a needle and thread and would be happy to share their skills?  

Do encourage them to come along and say hello at our next session  or email us for more information transitiontowntooting@gmail.com

13.30 – 16.30 on 30th November
Mushkil Aasaan, 220 – 222 Upper Tooting Road, SW17 7EW (next to Nando’s)   

We get lots of support from our partners The Restart Party with online resources and workshops – and we offer lots of thanks and cups of tea and biscuits on the day!

Restart Parties are a community self-repair space where you take responsibility for your own gadgets and data, so please don’t forget to take any back-ups beforehand, if relevant – and if possible arrive during the first two hours to allow time for fixing!
