The Portable Stitch: Mending to Improve

Mending is about many things; repairing, improving, healing, even rebuilding. Mending is a practice, a sort of ritual, an attempt to make something whole again. It has the backing of the whole human experience. We have been mending things far longer than we can imagine. In this all-day workshop we will work on many techniques that help us achieve clothing-longevity. Anything you would like to mend is worth mending. We will focus on mending every day woven garments and learn different stitches and patching techniques to showcase creative repairs. Maday will bring denim swatches to practice techniques.
