  • 35 US dollars
  • Sidco Drive

Service Description

It’s 2022 and we can make old things new! Bring in your torn clothes, tattered quilts, moth-eaten curtains, or any other textiles that need to be mended… even something intact that might just need some freshening up with your uniquely sewn signature! Through simple stitches you’ll express yourself in a way that embraces the previous history of the garment, while adding your own style and whimsy. Whether you have advanced skills or have never sewn before, there’s a place for you in this class! You can attend one, two, or all three Wednesday evenings - January 5, 12, 19 - if you want the ongoing companionship that can be found in a sewing circle! In each of these sessions we will cover some basic mending, specific stitches, and fabric attachment techniques. These methods will strengthen your garment through construction, along with creating a final decorative element. Whether you’re inspired by history, fashion, or sustainability, you will love the time spent in studio, focused on the meditative act of hand-stitching.
