Patagonia brings clothing repair roadshow to Seven Springs this weekend

After years of hosting pop-up Worn Wear events, Patagonia on Friday brought its clothing repair and exchange program to Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Champion. The crew will remain at the resort, its last stop on the East Coast tour, through Sunday.

Beyond repairing articles of clothing from any brand — not just Patagonia — expert seamstresses also will teach people how to make their own repairs — even offering used clothing for teaching instruction. Find a pair of shorts that you like hanging on the rack with a rip in them, and they will provide you instruction on how to repair them. And if you complete the repair, you get to keep the item.

“One of the most responsible things we can do as a company is make high-quality stuff that lasts for years, so you don’t have to buy more of it,” the company says on its website.

The Worn Wear trailer will be open from noon to 5 p.m. each day through Sunday.

Note: Clothing only. No shoes, boots, luggage or hardgoods will be repaired.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
