Patagonia + Worn Wear

My very favorite sewing thing to do (besides make bags!) is save a favorite clothing item. People come to me with sweatshirts, pants, jackets, shorts that they love and I get paid to fix them!

Yesterday, I had lunch with one of my former students. Kern is amazing! He is an outdoor guide who has hiked both the Appalachian Trail (made a movie about it!) and the Pacific Crest Trail. He is also one of the most upbeat, likable, fun people I know. Each time he comes to Colorado I get to treat him to lunch or dinner. YAY!
Guess what he's doing now? He's working for Patagonia on their Worn Wear tour. What? He rides around in a cool truck made from recycled materials and fixes clothing for people. Yes. Really. How cool is that?

Love the fix on this hat…

Isn't that amazing? I told him the next time he's in Colorado with the truck I'll come and help fix clothes! Teresa
