Mend and Embellish
Saturday November 14th 2-4
Curious about methods to fix knit fabric? Intrigued by visible mending? Interested in adding embroidery and duplicate stitch to knit fabric? In this workshop, you'll learn all these skills. We'll start with an overview of mending techniques, including darning and patching. Then, we'll cover a few simple ways to add both strength and beauty to fabric, including satin stitch and duplicate stitch. You can apply what you learn to many types of fabrics, not just hand-knits!
Each participant will receive a kit of supplies for this workshop.
Kits will include:
- Tapestry needle
