A new program has begun in Chaffee County to help keep some clothing out of the Chaffee county landfill.

Not everyone can sew like these award-winning Chaffee County 4-H sewing project entries that  represent the talents of local youth. But Mend-it Mondays can help get locals’ clothing back in shape. Image courtesy of Chaffee County 4-H.

Don’t have a clue about how to sew on a button, or fix a tattered hem? Then “Mend-It Monday”, a free service from local sewists, is for you.

The third Monday of the month is approaching and the organizers of “Mend-it Mondays” will be hosting its third monthly session from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday, March 20, in the United Methodist Church basement (enter from the parking lot).

There will be experienced sewists there with all the right equipment and skills to get your clothing back into shape. All clothing must be clean, and the sewists will not work on leather or zippers.

“Mend-It Monday” is not intended to serve as a free alteration service, but organizers say that they can refer clients to local alteration specialists.
