a project in partnership with Creative Reuse Toronto, Greenest City Environmental Organization, and the City of Toronto
The Parkdale - West Queen West Sewing Repair Hub is a joint project of Creative Reuse Toronto, Greenest City Environmental Organization and the City of Toronto, and is funded by the City in order to help meet the goals of the City's Long Term Waste Strategy. This program provides workshops and drop in mending circles to encourage repair and reuse of clothing and other textiles in order to help reduce the amount of textiles discarded in the trash each year. The City is partnering with Greenest City, and Creative Reuse Toronto to deliver the Sewing Repair Hubs program in the downtown west area of the City. There are four other sewing hubs that are part of the City program, and these can be found on the City of Toronto website on the Community Reduce & Reuse Programs pages
