End Time: 8:00 PM
 Visible Mending celebrates resourcefulness and sustainability by showcasing hand stitching rather than hiding it. This workshop will highlight the act of mending and textile repair with Sashiko Japanese Embroidery. Students will learn how to patch and repair a rip or hole, reinforce a worn area, and prepare their distressed textile in order to draw a Sashiko grid and pattern of their choice. Participants will employ the “small stabs” Sashiko stitching technique to repair or embellish their project! Bring in one or two garments to assess for mending or decorating. Ideally, areas to repair will be no larger than four inches. Medium-weight, woven cotton fabrics work best; such as denim jeans, cotton or linen shirts, pants, cotton dresses. If desired, students may simply practice a Sashiko pattern or two on sampler patches provided. All tools and materials provided. All skill levels welcome from novice to veteran hand stitchers; teens and adults welcome! Please be sure to wear your good reading glasses if needed. Registration is required. We will be in touch to confirm registration the Monday before the event. Patrons who register and confirm but do not attend the event will be placed on a waitlist for future craft programs.
