At Learn Along #11 Fibreshed members met with the public to celebrate Fashion Revolution Week with a beautiful display of farm fresh fashion. We also introduced the Fibreshed Mending Bar to show that the slow fashion movement is happening in Fibreshed. We shared skills for visible mending, darning, patching, and also made dryer balls to sell at Earth Day. While we worked on our projects we discussed what we’d like to be doing at future Learn Alongs. We talked about having more sessions on repurposing the clothes we own, restructuring items from the thrift store and organizing clothing swaps.
