Calendar May 14, 2019 at 6 pm

Don’t have a sewing machine? Don’t worry! In this class we will go through some hand sewing basics. Starting with a couple hand stitches then working on closures like buttons, snaps and eye hooks. After that we will cover darning and sweater damage along with tips, tricks and tools that will get you started stitching!

Hoping to lower her environmental impact she shifted to clothing repair and mending, check out her sustainable stitches at topstitchmending.com.
