Join us for one or both of  our two Sunday-morning sessions (first, darning and second, patching) for some dedicated ME(nding) time, with lovely tea and company.

Our guest teacher, mending expert Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald (ELF – yes, a real elf!), will help guide you through the techniques and supplies best suited to your projects.

No prior mending experience is required.

NOTE: This workshop will focus on mending by hand, and mega-mends, including those requiring sewing machines, may not be possible. If you have a crotch blowout that needs fixing, or buttonholes that need re-doing, head along to our Mending and Alterations Short Course in November instead.

The workshop price includes a copy of Erin’s book, Modern Mending, for you to use while you’re here and take home afterward. If you already own the book, bring it along to the workshop and enjoy $25 credit to spend on mending supplies from the shop instead.

SOSU has sewing thread, fabric scraps, scissors, irons and ironing boards available to use. A selection of shop supplies – including needles, thread, mending yarn and de-pillers – will be available to try and purchase at each session.
