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),
- 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
