Intro to FCS hosts Mending Clinic

Megan Shultz
Mending hearts. FCS classes are excited for the opportunity to give back to the school community by sewing their items for no charge.

From Tuesday, April 9 to Friday, April 12, the Intro to FCS classes will be hosting a Mending Clinic. Students are asked to bring in any items in need of minor repairs to room A335 with a post it note including your name and homeroom number. If the item needs a patch, send a photo to Mrs. Cron, she will try her best to closely match it. If you need buttons replaced, please send in replacement buttons with the item. Once the item is finished, the student who fixed it will return it in person. 

“I hope that they will gain hands-on sewing experience with a variety of different materials,” Intro to FCS teacher Betsy Cron said. “It is a good chance to see just what they can do and give back.” 

The classes have been working with the basics of hand sewing material and are looking for new opportunities for hands-on learning to finish up this unit.

Megan Shultz, Associate Editor
My name is Megan Shultz, and I am an associate editor on the Mt. Echo staff. Ever since I was young I would spend my free time writing stories for my family. Now, entering my senior year, I still get excited to show them my work. When I'm not reading or writing, I love to dance and hangout with my friends. Once I graduate, I hope to attend Mount Aloysius for their sonography program. Until then, I'm looking forward to my senior year and the awesome memories I will make.
