Event Navigation

sashiko mending, repair, and design

Give new life to worn fabrics with the art of boro and sashiko mending. The term boro refers to rags or scraps of fabric and describes clothing that has been repaired over and over. Sashiko, literally translated to “little stabs”, is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching. Not only does this visible mending strengthen the fabric, but enhances any flaws (holes or stains) in a beautiful way.

This class will be conducted live via Zoom, and you will receive information by email prior to the class on how to participate. You may pick up a kit of materials including a long needle, embroidery floss, scrap fabric, graph paper and denim + fabric scraps to practice with on Thursday, February 4, 11a-5pm, or you may email classes@perennialstl.org to arrange another time.
