February 2–March 2, 2019: Make Do & Mend Challenge Exhibit, San Francisco, California

Curated by the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design, the Make Do & Mend Challenge exhibition displays entries from their Make Do & Mend Challenge, named after an informational pamphlet from Britain during World War II. The idea is that so many of the resources created in today’s world end up wasted, and the challenge urged participants to mend or reuse materials in interesting and beautiful ways.

    I really like this feature. I only wish you would tell us farther in advance of these events. I would consider going to some of them, but I’d have to travel, and three, two or even only one week in advance just too short!
    Maybe include three months worth of events in each posting?

    I agree completely with the comment above. Please consider
    more advance notice of these events .

    Yes, advance notice would be terrific ! You have readers from all over and of many different financial backgrounds as well as prior commitments, responsibilities , etc that need to be considered in the case of some of these events where arrangements may need to be made well in advance . Thanks !
