Futuremenders invites you to a time in the future when, due to extreme resource shortage, the supply of socks can not meet demand and the value of holey socks increases by darning. The Sock Exchange makes darning fun and worthwhile by enticing the people of Cork, beginners and experts alike, to darn en masse.
