Reuse-a-Palooza at The Plant!

First of all, forgive me for not updating the past two months–we had two jam packed clinics at our Bluestem Restoration location. Bonkers! So, sometimes it’s just tricky to find the time to update all the social media, eblasts, and website. I’ll work on it!

This month, we were asked back to The Plant’s Reuse-a-Palooza and managed to get through a staggering 46(!) items during our afternoon stint near the turtle pond.

Big thanks to The Plant for having us back, to JB for helping us out in a pinch yet again, to Ghost Dog for being the cutest mascot, and to our two new delightful volunteers, Krystal and Rebecca. Also, extra props to the sewists who repaired, among countless other garments, NINE pairs of pants with worn out crotch areas. They’ve learned to bring a lot of patches.

Our next clinic will be May 21st, noon – 3pm at our usual digs at Bluestem Restoration, 2844 N. Leavitt St., Chicago 60618. I’ll likely post a follow up to this post, but juuuust in case.

Here are some highlights from our time at The Plant:
