Make do and Mend with the Vancouver Quarter’s fourth Saturday club

People are being invited into the Vancouver Quarter on Saturday 22 July to upcycle their unwanted clothing as part of a Make do and Mend workshop.

Running from 10am to 3pm in the unit opposite to Wilko in New Conduit Street, those interested in attending are encouraged to bring their own clothing to create cushion covers, bags and keep sakes without needles and thread.

This free drop-in session is running the day before the Forties Lynn – Life on the Home Front event and is the fourth Vancouver Quarter Saturday Club of 2017. Like the previous three Saturday clubs, this workshop is suitable for children aged three years and above but they must be supervised by adults at all times.

“We’ve been delighted with the feedback from the other Saturday clubs and we’re looking forward to putting on another free event that will ensure children have a fun-filled time in the heart of King’s Lynn,” said Vancouver Quarter’s marketing and events assistant David Blackmore.

“With it being Forties Lynn the following day, it seemed fitting to host an upcycling event that would have been commonplace for Lynn’s residents during the Second World War as they ‘kept calm and carried on’.

​There will be plenty of other free events in the Vancouver Quarter this year, including the return of our very popular Halloween event and Christmas Grotto. ​Follow us Twitter, like our page on Facebook and keep an eye on our website for details of events when they are confirmed.
