Repair What You Sew 

Struggling to finish knitting that scarf you started two years ago? Just now realizing that the sweater you've been crocheting while sipping vodka on the couch actually has three sleeves? Before trashing the projects, try getting them back on track with a little professional guidance. Fabric Recycles (9268 Metcalf in Overland Park) salvages sewing machines, fabric, trims and crafts from personal collections and estates, making do-it-yourself projects and garment construction greener and more affordable. Customers can also bring in their own fabrics and equipment to sell and trade. On Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., learn to turn those textiles into something useful during "pick a pattern" classes. For $15 an hour, anyone, at any skill level, can take in projects from home — socks, purses, cat snuggies — and receive individual instruction and direction. Space is limited to four per class. See fabricrecycles.com or call 913-385-0614.— Angela Lutz
