#22: Mending Workshops with Carla & Meg / Community Glue
/

It’s the last episode of CYT for 2021, and a first for the podcast: a conversation involving three people! I talk to Carla Bruni, the founder and organiser of Community Glue Workshops which are regular, free mending events taking place in Chicago, and Megan Grandstaff, who is one of the talented and dedicated volunteers, who specialises in fixing clothing and textile items. We get into the origin story of this almost-ten-year-old enterprise, and learn the keys to its massive success. How does the season affect how they prepare for the events? And why did CGW introduce a ‘launder first’ rule?! If you’re interested in setting up a mending workshop of some description, this is essential listening. The conversation also goes in other fascinating sustainability and mending related directions. Both Carla and Meg are incredibly intelligent and experienced people, so I know you’re going to love this end of year conversation…
