For more than five years a wonderful cadre of some sixteen women from several of our partner churches have come to Breaking Bread each Thursday in groups of two or three to offer free mending services to our guests. This has become one of the services our guests count on, not just for the mending, but also for the kind words and encouraging smiles that greet each one who comes to the mending room with a favorite item of clothing that needs attention. Our Menders are always ready to welcome new volunteers, so if you have basic (or even advanced!) sewing skills, just get in touch with Barbara Lappen at email@example.com and she will get you into the mender rotation.
When: The Menders come to every Thursday Breaking Bread except for Holy Thursday and Thanksgiving Day.
Where: The Mender sewing room is located in the first small meeting room just inside the Sunday School Room.
