Visible Mending


When: Saturday, May 11, 11:00 - 1:00 pm

Join the movement to make clothing last longer and make a statement with your clothing and accessories. Learn to make your mending beautiful with striking colors, fabrics, and visible decorative embroidery stitches. Add new life to old clothes in just a couple hours with this fun workshop. We will use sashiko embroidery (which means little stabs) and boro (layering fabrics to patch a larger piece), traditional Japanese techniques, originally used by farmers and fishermen to reinforce and patch worn or damaged clothing. 

What You Will Learn: Basic sashiko embroidery stitches, mending techniques, hand sewing, cutting, measuring, and techniques to make mending last.

Materials: Bring a pair of jeans, or woven fabric garment in need of repair (NOT knits such as a t-shirt or sweater).  All mending fabric, thread, needles, and tools will be supplied for use during the workshop.  Take home your garments with updated styling and mending.  Nothing to mend? It's ok. You can practice techniques with fabric available at the studio.
