This week in our Making It Work series, Eleni shines a light on mending your clothes. Rather than hiding this craftsmanship away, she’s exploring the world of visible mending, which has a rich history with multiple techniques to choose from.
Making It Work
This week in our Making It Work series, Eleni evaluates New Year’s Resolutions and the unnecessary criticism of others that can arise from lofty goals. Instead, she suggests that we celebrate the incremental changes that others achieve, and advocate for large-scale change from the institutions and systems that should provide it.
This past weekend, our favorite blogger Eleni sat down with Thrift 2 Fight Co-Founder Jillian Reed to discuss the opening of the new T2F store. Together, they discuss the history of T2F, all of the exciting things that made a physical T2F store possible, and the dreams and plans for this new storefront in Tivoli, NY.
This week in our Making It Work series, Eleni is focusing on a seasonal oddity that is both hilarious & troublesome at the same time – the Ugly Sweater. In addition to explaining the damaging environmental consequences of fast fashion capitalizing on this trend, Eleni also gives us some sustainable ways to create and enjoy “ugly” sweaters without harming the planet.
