Hand Embroidery 101: Visible Hand Mending



Mending is functional and beautiful! Learn to extend the life of your favorite textiles using hand sewing & mending techniques. Hand sewing beginners are welcome!

Our textiles wear & tear naturally, learn to mend your favorite pieces by hand and with personality. We will discuss how different fibers wear out and how to best patch, weave, and reinforce them. It’s ok if you are still learning to thread a needle and sew on a button, we will talk about all of that too!

Bring your clothes that are in need of a little love and reinforcement. Don’t forget any patches or fabrics you’d like to use. We will supply sewing threads, needles, scissors, and any mending tools needed during class.
