Interested in walking our catwalk? We’re looking for models of all ages to strut their stuff in their best thrift or mended fashion finds. If you need inspiration or supplies, stop by our mending table any time the library is open between April 15th and 22nd to choose from a selection of thrifted clothing items and mending supplies. On the day of the sustainability fair, meet us by the stage at 11:30 am to be placed in the show.
