About this Event

Learn the art of visible mending with Namita Patel from Dayton Fibershed. Learn how to repair clothing to extend their lifespan while at the same time updating the design of these garments to create a new look. We will cover ways to mend garments using embroidery, patchwork, and weaves. For participants interested in sharing their mending projects, we will have a show-and-tell at the end of the session. We hope this time of sharing will allow participants to learn from each other and inspire new designs.

Mending is an act of resilience. It extends the lifespan of clothing and reduces textile waste into our landfills. The simple skill of mending will help you repair and redesign your wardrobe for a lifetime.

FREE – to make this skill available to all and those struggling during COVID.
