Sewing clubs in Brooklyn, New York are taking an excellent initiative in encouraging locals to embrace sustainable clothing. Its a fact that cloth manufacturing consumes a lot of electricity and water, which does not help the environment, and that’s why these sewing clubs are holding free training classes to teach people how to mend their torn clothes and reuse them instead of heading out to buy new ones.

Locals can check up any of the below groups that hold regular sewing trainings:

The Mending Circle at the Textile Arts Center — first Thursday of every month, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Brooklyn Sews at LaunchPad — every Tuesday from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

BurdaStyle Brooklyn Sewing Club — meet-up time and place varies, sign up on the website for the latest updates

Craft Nights at Etsy Labs — every Monday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
