There is the coolest book, ya’ll! I devoured it and want to share it in practice in a 3-week series workshop!

“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!” visible mending

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

  • Boro Stitching
  • Hand Embroidery
  • Patches (if we have time we’ll haul out the sewing machines, too)

Your registration fee includes a copy of the book, Visible Mending as well as some specialty supplies (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 sweater/hat. Jeans are important for the first night and we can talk about other items then.

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

Open Tuesday - Friday 10 am - 5 pm; Saturday 10 am - 2 pm
