Rambling Repair - Mending my way from Burlington to Bar Harbor on a Bike 


Over the course of four weeks this spring I will be biking from Burlington, Vermont to Bar Harbor, Maine and stopping at 11 Libraries along the way to share free community workshops on Mending and Textile Repair. I love to sew, to chat with strangers, and to bring creative solutions to seemingly broken items. This adventure is a chance for me to share my passion for repair, learn from communities along the way, and slow down to the speed of a bicycle to see my home states through a new lens.


In each town I will get to sit down with community members and stitch, darn, patch, and gain new stories and visions of what mending is all about. I am excited to join the Jeudevine Library for a workshop on April 22 at 4 PM and see what we create together!


The Jeudevine and the Galaxy Bookshop present a reading with Thomas Christopher Greene Tuesday, April 30, at 7 PM.


“Covid -19 stole so much. But one of the things it couldn't steal was the power of stories.” These stories were written during the pandemic from Greene’s porch in Montpelier.


Thomas Christopher Greene is the author of six novels, including the international bestseller The Headmaster’s Wife. Greene is also the founder of the Vermont College of Fine Arts where he served as president for thirteen years. He makes his home in Montpelier.


Copies of the book will be available to purchase, courtesy of The Galaxy Bookshop! This event is free and open to the public at the Jeudevine.
