  • Creative Mending Workshop!

    Saturday Febraury 24th 2-4 PM // Taught by Jana Jarosz , a graduate of Art Center College of Design with a FIT Menswear Tailoring certificate // From Sewing buttons to fixing "oh-no's: Expert & Creative Mending Techniques // Ever wanted to know how to really sew on a button (so it stays on), and mend a hem with something other than tape or staples? What if you could imagine ways to resurrect your favorite shirt or skirt with the stain that "just won’t come out" or maybe shrunk beyond all recognition the last time it came back from the laundry?  This two-hour workshop will focus on demystifying expert mending techniques for buttons and hems and then explore creative ways to mend a much-loved garment. Participants will learn through a hands-on approach how to select the right button for the right fabric, identify the correct thread, and practice stitch techniques. Two hand stitches appropriate for hemming at home while binge-watching your favorite show will also be covered. The second half of the class will focus on individual and group review of garments brought from home, then concepting and designing creative techniques to bring them back to life and back into your closet. // We have 8 spots available, register in store on by email on our website
