Wednesday: Clothing and Textiles Remakery & Boomerang Bags:
- Whether you have clothes that need fixing or alterations, you’d like some advice on your latest project, or you simply need someone to show you how to use nana’s sewing machine, come along! Our talented seamstresses will help you realise your textile dreams.

- Kāpiti has joined the Boomerang Bags movement, making quality reusable bags from pre-loved fabrics to stop the plastic bag tide. Join the movement by making a bag or two, and pick up some sewing skills on the way.

Thursday: Repairs from A-Z, Electrical and IT & The Rubbish Trip Human Library:
- The repair wizards from the Menzshed will be on site to help with all sorts of general repairs, from small furniture to toys or scooters, and a seamstress is available for clothing repairs.

- Got something with a plug that needs fixing? Whether it’s your desk lamp or toaster, our local electricians will give it go. We also have Olaf the IT guru there to help you troubleshoot your gadgets and mobile devices.

- While you wait, visit our 'human library' featuring No-Waste Nomads Hannah and Liam. Pick their brains on living zero waste, everyday upcycling and the philosophy of repair.

Friday: General Repairs, Garden Tools, Seed Saving and Swapping:
- Another instalment of everything repair with the Menzshed, expert clothing repairs, plus our garden gurus will be on site to help you sharpen your secateurs or breathe new life into the old spade.

- Be prepared to repair your garden! Bring along your home-grown seeds and the Seedy Sunday team will show you how to prepare and store them for next spring. Swap seeds with other gardeners via our swapping table to add variety.
