SacSews: Mending Class

March 10 at 10:00 am 12:30 pm

Welcome to the March Mend-a-Thon, a beginner-friendly sewing workshop that invites you to explore the art of creative mending and sustainable fashion practices. In this hands-on class, you’ll learn essential sewing techniques, from hand-sewing to machine basics. Dive into the world of fabric exploration, understanding different types and how to choose the right material for your projects. Discover the joy of creative mending through embroidery, patches, and decorative stitches, turning visible repairs into unique style statements. Tackle common garment issues, from holes to missing buttons, and bring your own item for personalized guidance. Meet other eco-conscious individuals, share tips, and contribute to a more sustainable wardrobe—one stitch at a time. March Mend-a-Thon is not just a workshop; it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact on your clothing and the environment.

Materials included in the cost and will be provided. All experience levels are welcome!

$35.00 (includes materials)
