Rockwood Library

Join Repair Cafe Gresham for a learn-to-repair workshop!

Do you have clothes and other fabrics that need mending? Bring them to this workshop and learn how to repair them yourself!

Volunteers experienced in sewing will demonstrate how to repair items and then provide guidance while you repair your own. Sewing machines and hand-sewing supplies will be available, but if you want something specific for your repair (like matching thread, button, zipper, etc.), please try to bring those extra supplies.
