Mobile Menders

Have a button to sew back on, pants that need to be hemmed or a tear in your favorite jeans?  

Mobile Menders is a volunteer group dedicated to providing free mending services around the Twin Cities area. Their goal is to provide clothing repair to those in need. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to have clothes that fit and are in good shape.  They hold mending clinics throughout the year some of which are in Anoka County.  For information about Mobile Menders or their events go to: https://mobilemenders.weebly.com/.
