Mending or darning (mending knitted items) is a practical and beautiful way to reinvent your clothes and make your wardrobe more sustainable. It’s a wonderful way to breathe new life into your clothes as we prepare for cooler weather. Anne will teach you how to use simple tools to create a mend on any garment that is as beautiful as it is functional. You will leave with a sturdily mended item and an understanding of how to approach a wide variety of repair projects.
Please bring a garment or other sewn or knitted item with small rip(s) or tear(s) in need of repair. Please, no technical (athletic/outdoor) fabrics, as these require different mending techniques. If you want to learn darning but don’t have an item that needs repair, you can knit a swatch and cut a hole in it. You'll have an opportunity to practice a variety of techniques, regardless of thee sample project you bring. We will provide supplies for you to use in the class (needle, thread, mending patches, and wool darning thread). Color and fiber content can’t be guaranteed, so if you have specific preferences, you’re invited to use your 10% class supply discount to choose your own fabric and/or yarn.
