There is the coolest book called Visible Mending.  We had a great time working through it in June and so we’re going to repeat this fall!!!

“Rip in your jeans? Snag in a sweater? Tear in a tea towel? They all present an opportunity for one-of-a-kind creativity! With this fun introduction to unconventional mending techniques in a format that’s half how-to guide, half idea book, anyone can give worn and torn items new life.”

“Start by learning hand-mending methods, including boro, embroidery, patching, and darning. Even with a limited budget and not much time to spare, you can create eye-catching repairs with visible mending–35 examples and more than 150 photos make it easy to put your unique mark on everything you mend!” visibe mending

We will explore this book over 3 sessions with tons of stitching each time we meet.

  • Boro Stitching
  • Hand Embroidery
  • Mending jeans, sweaters, and other garments
  • And, we’ll get out the stencils and fabric paints for some extra fancy stuff that’s not in the book. Whoop!

Your registration fee includes a copy of the book, Visible Mending as well as some specialty supplies  and access to the Studio stash

Students will need to bring:

  • a basic sewing kit with scissors, needles, thread, etc. If you don’t have one we can put one together for you!
  • A few washed, much-loved, used, favorite items of clothing like a pair of jeans and a knit sweater or hat. Jeans are important for the first night.

Before registering for this class, please review our Cancellation Policy, updated September 2018.
