Save your favorite socks, sweaters, and other clothes and textiles by learning how to mend them!

Self-taught mending enthusiast Ollie Cultrara will guide participants in three basic visible mending techniques for patching and darning your own items.

Participants should bring their own materials, including:

  • Cloth item to mend,
  • Sewing needle,
  • Thread and/or embroidery floss,
  • Fabric of similar texture for patching (a spare sock or scrap of fabric can work),
  • Scissors


  • Sewing pins,
  • Embroidery hoop or firm object (like a glass jar) to place behind your sewing,
  • Rubber band to hold fabric in place over the firm object
