TAKE ACTION!: Sustainable Adulting-Sew it, Don’t Throw it!

February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10 – $12

Adulting can be hard, but Ijams can help you find fun ways to do cope that also are eco-friendly! Join us as we present our newest series, Sustainable Adulting, that will focus on ways you can make better choices as adults (young and old) and you will learn what you can do at home and in your communities that can make an impact.

For our first workshop, Sew it- Don’t Throw it, we will focus on basic sewing techniques to mend your favorite clothes rather that just throwing them away- fixing seams, replacing buttons, how to put a patch on clothes, etc.

Local artist, Laurie Kay, (creator of Monsters Made with Love) will be the instructor for this workshop. Don’t worry if you don’t know what you are doing, Laurie will take you step by step through the basics.

All supplies will be included in this workshop. No experience necessary. All you have to do is bring in some clothing that you would like to fix- preferably ones that have some rips or worn spots, as well as clothing that needs buttons sewn back on.


Workshop will take place at the Visitor Center at Ijams.


The fee for this program is $12 for an individual ticket. Cost of workshop includes all supplies. REGISTER HERE.


Ijams awards full refunds for any cancellations up to 7 days before a program, or if Ijams cancels a program due to severe weather. Refunds are not awarded for programs with fees under $5 for any reason. Tickets are non-transferable
