We will provide some scrap cotton fabric for patching, but you may choose to bring your own if you have specific preferences or will be mending a specialty type of fabric.

Mending is an essential life skill that it is never too late to learn. In this fun and informal workshop, local designer and sewing professional Jan Lloyd will demonstrate essential mending techniques as each student works through their own projects that require one of the following repairs: shortening, lengthening, or repairing a hem; reattaching or replacing a button; or patching. You'll leave with a lifelong skill set that will help you get more out of the things you love.
