Austin Resource Recovery presents Fix-It at Home!, a FREE interactive, online workshop series aimed at teaching Austinites repair and maintenance skills from home. Classes range from learning sewing basics and ‘patching’ up clothes, to fixing recreational equipment and household appliances. 

If you’ve  never tried your hand at sewing, this workshop is for you.  Our instructor will demonstrate  3 various basic hand stitches, each followed by practice time for the participants. These techniques will equip you with skills for your own mending endeavors, so you can repair that tear in your favorite shirt or replace a missing button. No machine required! Even if you only have a mending kit from a hotel, we invite you to learn and practice!

Class size is limited. If you are unable to attend, please remove your registration. Class participants that live in the Austin-area will be given priority.
