Lavender to the rescue!

Are clothes moths ruining your wardrobe? Do you want to deter these pests while keeping your clothes smelling lovely?

We'll be offering a free 'Make Your Own Lavender Bag' workshop at our weekly Repair Surgery on Wednesday the 8th of October, from 7-9pm with some donated lavender, and some very pretty fabrics.
Moths are notoriously difficult to eradicate, and there is no single weapon that will defeat them. Lavender bags don't kill moths, they just make a small area less appealing to them. But they make your clothes smell great, and they make nice gifts too.
If you have your own dried lavender then please do bring it along, but if not then don't worry, we'll have some lavender to spare. The workshop will start at 7:15pm and doors are open from 7pm so there'll be time to make a cup of tea before we start. This workshop is by donation, so please give what you can afford.
