This class is for everyone who loves mending and handwork.
Whether you are brand new or have some experience.
Our clothes and belongings have a history, a story, a connection, and it is a gift of self-care or for our loved ones to keep those pieces close to us.
In this class we will focus on woven fabric items (jeans, bags, jackets, etc.) and go over a plethora of ideas to mend: applique (over) and reverse (under) applique patches, basic embroidery stitches, Sashiko stitching, stamping with fabric ink, adding sequins, transferring embroidery designs, making patches ahead of time, we will also discuss how you could add knitting or crocheting to your project (how to learn to knit or crochet not included) and caring for your mended item.
