Hand Sewing for Mending and Repair
July 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm$50.00
Hand-sewing is a skill that everyone should have! Have you ever wanted to hem your own pants or skirts or shirts? Mend rips in clothing? How about the best way to sew on a button or a ready-made patch?
We’ll be learning the following stitches: running stitch, back stitch, whip stitch, slip stitch and blanket stitch.
Bring clothing that needs mending: A tee shirt, pants or skirt. You can use your own buttons too!
*No prior experience is required. There is A/C in the sewing room!
