What we can help with:

  • Buttons and fasteners
  • Taking up hems and some fitting adjustments
  • Mending and darning holes
  • Advice on how you might repair a piece of clothing, including zips.

This session is at Frome Boulder Rooms – a wonderful venue – you can watch everyone climbing and mend your clothes. And there’s a cafe with drinks and snacks available to purchase.
