This class is for everyone who loves mending and handwork.

Whether you are brand new or have some experience.
Our clothes and belongings have a history, a story, a connection, and it is a gift of self-care or for our loved ones to keep those pieces close to us.

In this class we will go over a plethora of mending techniques: applique (over) and reverse (under) applique patches, basic embroidery stitches, needle felted patching for knitted garments, stamping with fabric ink, making patches ahead of time, we will also discuss how you could add knitting or crocheting to your project (how to learn to knit or crochet not included), caring for your mended garment, methods for transferring your designs and much more!

All skill levels are welcome! There is something for everyone to learn.


Scrap fabric for patches, handmade sequins to try, fabric stamping supplies, sample books to look at, examples of mended items, needles, and thread (if student didn’t bring any), needle felting supplies, handouts and some give away goodies.
