Swap, don’t shop!  Repair, don’t toss! 


Date: Saturday August 20, 2022 

Time: 6-9pm

Place: 3033 Carling Ave. 204, Ottawa

Ticket: $30 


What you need:


  • Bring clothing or textiles in need of repair, and learn how to alter, darn, felt, and patch your way back to wearable clothing through one on one and hands-on demonstrations with Ludmila – Tailor and Alteration Expert!
  • Bring all your unwanted clothing (don’t forget shoes, jewellery, scarves, and other accessories) 


Swap rules:


  • no limit to how much you can bring or take, but no hoarding of items or taking items to sell later
  • items should be relatively clean – from storage is okay as long as there are no strong odours or other storage related issues
  • damaged items are okay to bring (we can fix them together)
  • leftover items will be repurposed or donated to charity
  • bring a bag or two (or more) to take home your items
  • if you’re bringing things to swap, come at 6:00pm to organize your clothes


First come, first fixed! All welcome to take part in the swap and watch demonstrations, without bringing items to fix.
