Mending Class Fee
Bring your denim, twill, canvas or medium weight linen clothing items that have a hole, tear, snag or are thread bare and let’s get them fixed up for you and keep them in use and looking amazing. This piece of clothing might just become your very favorite!!!
Visible mending on our clothes can serve the practical purpose of strengthening and repairing worn areas. It can also give some unique and one of kind character to a garment and represent your personal artistic style.The way you decide to mend an item is very personal. In this class I will demonstrate different options
for mending your natural fiber, medium weight clothing items and you can decide how to move forward with your own mend. I will bring a variety of my mended garments as examples so you have lots of inspiration.
The class is 2 hours in length. After some instruction on techniques and different mending methods you will have time to work on your own project and I will be right there to help and answer your questions.
