Clothes swap and repair at Sustainable Kirriemuir cafe event

The event, in Kirriemuir Church Hall between 10am and 1pm, will be ideal for anyone who has clothing that needs repaired, from a button needing reattached to a burst seam or unravelling hem.

One of a team of skilled volunteers will have a go at mending the item or will let you know if it needs professional attention. The only stipulation is no zips. Stay to watch the process and learn something new or nip over to one of the other stations. Payment is by ‘pay what you feel’ donation.

Alternatively, good quality, clean items of clothing (maximum five per person) can be swapped. Spring and summer adult men’s and women’s clothing is being accepted. Have a look at the rails and take away new pieces of clothing for free to enjoy this spring and summer.

There will also be a variety of vegetable and pollinator-friendly plants for sale, including flowers, herbs, and salads. The cafe will serve tea, coffee, hot chocolate and juice, with home baking or biscuits. Donations of home baking will be accepted on the day.

Further details are available on the Sustainable Kirriemuir website.

If you would like to donate plants (veg/pollinator friendly species) or clean, good quality clothing (max. 5 pieces per person) that you would be happy to pick up yourself, but cannot come along on the day with them, please drop them off at the Kirriemuir Parish Church on Thursday, May 26 between 9am-12pm and 2pm-4pm, or Friday, May 27 between 9am and 12pm. Please get in touch with if these times are not suitable for you.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
