RETHINK is not your typical tailoring shop.
RETHINK’s mission is to keep as many garments out of the landfills as possible. Here’s how we do it:
- We only tailor and upcycle preloved garments
- We empower others to repair and sew their own wardrobes through our classes
- We sell our upcycled designs in person at 3449 Bloomington Ave and online, many of which are upcycled from damaged garments collected from the community.
TAILORING/UPCYCLING PRELOVED GARMENTS:
Our waitlist for fittings is currently full. If you want updates on when we will be accepting new clients, please subscribe to our email list.
*Please no walk-ins for repairs or tailoring.
We are currently at capacity and are not able to take on repair projects at this time. Once we get through our queue we will resume, so join our email list for updates on when we can help you mend your wardrobe again. If you want to learn, we’d love to teach you! Our Hand-Mending Basics Class and Visible Mending Workshops is a perfect place to start if you’re a beginner, and if you’re comfortable using a machine, Kristen can even teach you how she fixes client jeans by machine in-person or online. Reweaving classes coming soon!
Have you been wanting to learn to sew? If you don’t have a machine yet, our Hand-Mending Basics Class or Visible Mending Workshop are both perfect places to start learning to fix your wardrobe. If you have a machine, our Meet your Machine class with Laura (she/her) is a perfect place to start! She will research your machine ahead of time and can customize your session to make sure you cover what you want to learn! For our other classes, you can either bring your own machine or use one of ours. See all of our sewing, alteration, mending, and upcycling classes we offer here. Don’t see what you want to learn? We can do private lessons for $45/hr so just send us an email to email@example.com to let us know what you want to learn!
ONLINE SEWING LOUNGE:
Learn from home with our virtual classes, Q&As, tutorials, private lessons via Zoom, and more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information or want to sign up for a private lesson!
