Scadding Court Community Centre Sewing Hub is a space where sewing and sustainability meet. Many items that can be reused are thrown out every day. To help foster a culture of waste reduction, sharing, repairing and reusing, the City is working with local agencies and non-profit organizations to deliver Community Reduce & Reuse Programs. Scadding Court is proud to partner with the City to provide programming that focuses on sewing and waste reduction that will help to build sustainable communities and reduce the amount waste going to landfill by:
– educating residents about the importance of waste reduction and reuse
– providing opportunities for sharing and repairing
– offering skills training and creating job and economic opportunities
– creating spaces for community members to gather.
Started in October of 2018 SCCC’s Sewing Hub currently offers a wide range of services for the community including both 8 week beginner and advanced courses, free drop in times (for those with sewing experience) and a free basic clothing repair clinic 3 times a week. For more information check out our program schedule for times and locations.
