Mend, Patch, Embellish Stitching Workshop

June 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Do you have a pair of jeans that are in need of repair or a favourite shirt that is looking a bit faded? Bring along an item in need of embellishment, patch/repair, or just join in for a couple of hours of mindful slow stitching.

There will be a selection of fabrics and examples of repair and embellishment for us to use as inspiration!

All materials included.

Suitable for ages 14+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
