The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

Radical Mending is a workshop is to teach and learn about mending clothing, and an ongoing research/informational project on the history of textile repair, the global textile industry, and its impact on labor and the environment. Bring clean clothing, knitwear, or domestic textiles that are in need of some attention, and be ready to share your mending know-how (or gain some). This is an art project, so please note that repairs may be artistic. A sewing machine and some materials for patching etc. will be provided, but feel free to bring your own scraps.
