Visible Mending with Sophia DeJesus-Sabella
Duration: 3 hours
Capacity: 8 participants

Darning is the technique of mending a hole in cloth with a needle and thread alone. The process incorporates basic stitching and weaving to create beautiful, functional repairs. With a visible mending approach, we will learn the basics on a provided fabric sample, incorporating embroidery stitches, weaving patterns, and color theory along the way. Everyone will go home with a completed sample and small kit to continue their mending at home. Feel free to bring a personal garment that needs mending to consult on the best approach.
