Give a second life to a treasured part of your wardrobe! Join us Tuesday, March 19, at 6 pm, for a Visible Mending Workshop organized in conjunction with the exhibition Yvette Molina: A Promise to the Leaves. Instructor Karen Stevens ’88 will teach participants how to use fabric remnants and embroidery supplies to “visibly mend” (using decorative stitching) their garments into pieces that are functional and beautiful.

Participants should bring one or more articles of treasured clothing in need of mending. Woven fabrics will be the focus of this class: denim (with limited or no stretch), cotton, flannel or linen button-down shirts, lightweight bags or totes. No special sewing skills are needed. Participants will be using a basic running stitch and cotton embroidery floss. Fabric remnants, scraps, needles, and embroidery floss will be provided.

Registration required via this Google form.

This workshop is free and open to the public.
