Skills you’ll learn:
Never worry about damaging your favorite sweater or pair of jeans again! In this class, students will learn how to repair holes in both woven and knit garments using traditional mending and darning techniques. Each student will be provided with as many hole-y sample swatches as they need to practice on and are encouraged to used these skills on pieces of their own that need mending! Participants will learn how to make their repairs nearly invisible, or they can choose to experiment with decorative visible mending. Be sure to have a pair of scissors handy to participate!
This is a virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be emailed information about how to participate prior to the class. You may pickup kits containing a needle, embroidery hoop, woven and knit fabric samples, yarn, and pins on Thursday, August 6 or Friday, August 7 from 11am-5pm either day, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange another time.
