Mend & Meal with Manduhandu 

Drop in on Thursday evenings (4/18, 25), 5 - 8pm

Join us for an inclusive and community-centered experience at our new Mend & Meal Social series of events! M&M starts next Thursday April 18, 5-8pm, at our Otto Finn Studio Store. We believe in the power of bringing people together in a warm and welcoming environment. Whether you're a seasoned crafter or just starting out, everyone is invited to participate in this unique gathering.

This is a community event, not a class, where you can work on your hand sewing/ mending projects or any other hand projects in a supportive community environment (no sewing machines will be available). It's an opportunity to connect over crafting and delicious food in a warm and inclusive atmosphere. From patching up holes to adding decorative stitching, discover the joy of giving new life to well-loved items alongside fellow crafters.
Indulge your taste buds with delectable vegan and gluten-free Korean cuisine by Manduhandu, available for pre-order. Weekly menus will be posted on Instagram (@manduhandu), or sent by email upon request (manduhandupgh@gmail.com).

At Mend & Meal Social, we embrace diversity and inclusivity, creating a space where everyone feels valued and respected. Join us for an evening of crafting, feasting, and camaraderie where stitches meet sustenance and everyone is welcome. BYOB!
