In Depth Visible Mending
May 7, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm$160.00
‘Make do and mend’ is an old British war-time refrain but I truly think a garment that has been lovingly mended using visible techniques is better than it was brand new.
6-hour class. Helen will provide instruction for 3 different types of visible mending – darning, needle felting and boro patching. Bring your moth-holed sweaters and socks and give them a new life! Materials provided for darning, felting and patching. If you don’t have anything to bring, you can use scrap fabric provided.
CLASS DATE: 5/7
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
MAX CAPACITY: 10 people
MINIMUM: 5 people
