Visible Mending on Denim with Amanda McLaurin March 7 2020 at Indigo Stitch



In this world obsessed with the cycle of consumerism, slow fashion is more important than ever. Reduce your impact on the environment (and on your wallet!) by mending items you already own. In this workshop you’ll learn basic sewing skills to mend, reinforce, and add visual impact to your existing wardrobe.


Bring a damaged item you’d like to repair or just embellish to work on in class. Denim or woven fabrics work best for this class. We’ll provide a needle, thread and a variety of patches made from upcycled fabrics and handwoven textiles from Indonesia. Other supplies like rulers, water soluble markers, chalk pencils and additional patches will be available during class time and as optional purchase at the end of class. 


In this class you’ll learn:
Basic hand-sewing techniques to mend/reinforce clothing
Running stitch & Whip stitch
How to create stitch patterns using a grid
