EXPANDING THE LIFE OF A SWEATER WITH VISIBLE MENDING

In this era of fast fashion, mending your clothes is an act of rebellion. Visible mending extends that rebellion by showcasing your mends as colorful, creative additions to the original garment. This three hour class is a hands-on tutorial in harnessing your creativity to mend holes in sweaters, socks, and other knit garments. Participants will learn how to prep the area that requires the mend and then decide upon the appropriate technique to employ. Participants will practice the woven patch, knitting a patch onto a garment and a few key embroidery stitches that work magic on sweaters.
