Mending 101

Save some moolah and show love to your clothes through repair!

About this experience

That’s right- that pile of mending, those wonky fits? You can DIY!  Every Mending class is a whole new adventure of repair.

In this short class we will go over a few common fixes:

-Reinforcing unravelling seams (common in tshirts and leggings- anywhere a serger was used really)

-Hemming clothes that are a little too long, taking in for improved fit

-Simple fixes for little holes

-Puzzling and problem solving!

After going over some of the basics, you will use your new skills to fix some of your own clothes, and we will problem solve together the specific items you’ve brought. Our machines will be set up in the most common colours, ready to go. If you need help with how to use a machine, we recommend our Get to Know your Sewing Machine class, or our ole-faithful Foundations as well!
