No Fix It event would be Complete Without Gina!

Always wanted to repair your own clothing but don’t know where to start?

Lucky for us, One Tree seamstress Gina has made us some videos outlining basic repair techniques: wool darning; a trouser patch; and repairing an inside seam.

And it wouldn’t be #VirtualFixIt without Gina! Without her help, the first Fix It events would never have taken off. She repaired over 125kg of clothing, resulting in a saving of 2,900kg of emissions by keeping items in circulation and out of landfill. She still repairs clothing for One Sleeve at a Time, and is an indispensable part of the team.

Let us know if you give the videos a go, and how you get on.
