ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Darn It! Our crafter will be showing you the process of “darning” or mending small holes that show up in your favorite clothing. This practical skill can extend the life of your garment, while adding a small decorative element, should you desire. Clothing production contributes heavily to pollution so the longer we can wear the clothes we already have the better off we will all be!
Please feel free to bring your own clothes for mending.
Materials provided at event:
- 4” embroidery hoops
- DMC Thread: 3-5 arm length pieces
- Iron on patches
- Fabric scraps 3” x 3” for backing holes
Doors open at 5PM
Crafting and comedy begins at 5:30PM
