This class is for everyone who loves mending and handwork, whether you are brand new or have some experience.
Great gifting idea for the holidays, start crossing those to-do's off your list! Have a loved one pick a beloved possession (shirt, pants or bag) or anything else that needs mending or gift yourself by mending something for you. There is satisfaction in putting a garment or bag back into circulation that has stories and connection to it!
