Stitch it, don’t ditch it: October 17

Our throw-away society is drowning us in waste, and speeding up the climate crisis. Come and join us in reducing waste, at our next Stitch-it-don’t-ditch-it event. As part of the Festival of Climate Action, we will be gathering to mend, stitch, rework and create, from 1-3pm on Sunday 17th October. We will be located at the north end of Tardanyangga/Vic Sq, with time to chat, introduce others to mending, or contribute to the Felt Book being created during the festival. Create a small panel with a message or an image! Help stitch a banner! Teach someone how to mend or repair! With a special shout-out to International Repair Day – ‘Repair lowers carbon emissions’. All welcome, family-friendly.

To book a ticket, please go here. To see more about what is happening over the three days of the festival visit the programme.

Anyone will be welcome to attend any of the sessions running during the weekend regardless of whether they have registered. If a session is over-subscribed though due to Covid limitations for our “indoor” marquee spaces, preference will be given to those who have RSVP’ed.

This is a grass roots community event. Please support us by donating to our crowdfunding campaign:
