WORKSHOP: Visible Mending with Margaret Falletta | Jan 26, 2020
Date: Sunday, January 26, 2020
Drawing on the Japanese tradition of Shashiko, this class will show you some simple but effective techniques and stitches for artfully repairing or embellishing your clothes.
218 Coop member Margaret Falletta will guide you in the art of visible mending. Bring a favorite clothing item that’s a little (or a lot) worn but you aren’t willing to give up on yet. Jeans, blouses or even sweaters with holes can be given a few more years of life and quite possibly become a stand out piece in your wardrobe. We’re going to think outside the box folks—and in good company! Margaret will have samples, fabric for patching holes, embroidery thread, needles and scissors available but feel free to bring some of your own.
