How to Make Do and Mend

Class Description: Are you looking for practical tips to save money and conserve resources? Take this course to learn how to mend holes in clothing, sew buttons, repurpose clothes and fix broken jewelry.

About the Instructor: A librarian by day, Rachel Lenstra was raised by farmer parents and grandparents who believed waste was a terrible personal failure. They taught her to sew, hammer, drill and repurpose her way through life. Lenstra integrates her “waste not, want not” mantra into her environmental activism and loves teaching others the mending way of life.
