Address: Market Street, Manchester, UK

Join us to take a stand against fast fashion by mending your clothes on the high street!

The idea behind #StitchItDontDitchIt is to give some visibility to the idea of repairing clothes, right in front of the high street’s fashion stores. Participants hope to inspire passers-by to mend and care for their clothes, by showing how with just a few simple sewing skills we can keep our clothes in use for longer and have a positive environmental impact. It is not a protest, but a gentle and positive event which spotlights and normalises clothing repair and encourages us to respect and value our clothing.

This year, Street Stitching is joining forces with Fashion Revolution for Mend in Public Day and we're joining in with a Manchester event!

Meet us outside H&M on Market Street.

Bring a chair, something to mend and a 'Stitch It Don't Ditch It' sign.
If you can try to bring the materials and equipment you need, that's helpful, but we'll all have lots of things (and skills) to share on the day.

All welcome - spread the word!
