UPSKILL + UPCYCLE // Repair w Style
UPSKILL + UPCYCLE // Repair w Style
Over six weeks of classes we cover sewing machine techniques, garment textile repairs and design and sew three of your own Into Carry bags. We dive deep into repair techniques so you can understand different styles and functions to apply to your garment repairs at home. As we are learning these repair techniques, you will be applying your new skills by designing your own Into Carry bags. These include an A5 Pouch, Glasses Case and (the final piece) a Min Sidebag.
WHO IT'S FOR: For this semester you don't need any prior sewing skills (just a can-do attitude and a hate for landfill). We cover the basics of using a sewing machine so you can repair your own garments at home. If you have sewn in the past but want to brush up on your skills, this is a great place to start.
LEARNINGS: Over the six weeks you learn the following skills:
- How to use a domestic sewing machine
- Sewing on woven fabrics
- Machine Repair technique (mending holes using a sewing machine)
- Sewing Buttons/Button Holes
- Decorative Stitches (styling repairs)
- Applique & Reverse Applique (patchwork techniques)
- Patch creation (kind of like Scouts/Girl Guides badges, but way cooler)
THE FORMAT: Each week consists of one two hour class, for six weeks. Each class covers a different skillset so you can tackle your own projects at home.
- Class runs 6pm-8pm
- 6 Weeks of 2 hour classes
- 6-8 Student Class with 2-3 'teachers' per session
- No prior skills required
- Each student will have their own sewing machine to practice on
- You will be guided through threading and troubleshooting a sewing machine
- Basic sewing and patch techniques covered (so you can do rad designs at home)

Wow my world just opened up...can't believe this beautiful bag is made from what we throw away.
Absolutely terrific! Love the bag so much that I wish I bought it earlier.
Sleek, durable and sustainable. Literally all the things I wanted.
Compact & Reliable
Small on the outside, spacious on the inside. You can rely on these practical, low fuss carry companions to handle your everyday essentials.
The most sustainable product is the one you don't buy. Let's make fixing something easier than buying a new one. If your bag has an accident, we'll get you back on the road. For free.
Our small team of three handcraft every piece of Into Carry in our little Collingwood warehouse. Located out the back of zero waste cafe; Into Coffee.
