Mending and Mojitos

Part of our 2024 World Fair Trade Day Week Celebrations!

WHEN: Tuesday, May 14, 5pm-8pm

WHERE: Grace Place, 637 South Dearborn Street Chicago, IL 60605

Got something in your closet that needs mending? Haven’t got round to it yet, or not sure how to?

Join us for a beginner-friendly DIY mending masterclass led by professional fiber arts instructor Kristine Brandel! Learn how to extend the useful life of your clothing, plus sip on refreshing mojitos made with fair trade rum from local ethical distillery Chicago Cane Cooperative.

How does it work? Just book your ticket and show up! Needles and thread, plus other mending materials, will be provided. You are welcome to bring along any items of clothing you want to learn how to mend. If you don’t have anything, no worries – we’ll have some fabric scraps and old clothing you can practice on.


Ticket types:

  • $15 or $5 for Chicago Fair Trade members (just contact us for the discount code).
  • Interested in becoming a Chicago Fair Trade member? Learn more and purchase your year-long membership as a ticket on Eventbrite to get your mending admission included!
  • If cost is a barrier for you, but you’d still love to participate, please let us know. We are able to offer a limited number of reduced price and/or comped tickets.

The event is finished.
