Visible Mending Workshop
Saturday, January 29, 10:30 am -12:00 pm
Inside the Garment Loft
Visible mending is a great way to lengthen the lifespan of your clothes through unique, personalized embroidery, weaving, and patching. Bring clothes with small holes or tears and practice a Sashiko stitch, embroidery darning, and patching with local artist (and BMI educator) Jesse Lentz. Hand sewing experience is preferable but not required. Suitable for ages 12+. Registration includes museum admission (open 9 AM-3 PM). Students are responsible for their own supplies: needles, pins, thread, scissors, darning egg or mushroom, embroidery floss and embroidery hoops.
