Tuesday May 30: ALTERATIONS with a Sewing Machine
Explore how to use a machine and learn a variety of seams and hems. Create a mini bag to practice your new skills, or bring a few items to repair with a little guidance & supervision. Mending members are welcome to bring in their own machine to re-learn how to use it, troubleshoot it, etc.

Tuesday June 13: BORO MENDING
Learn the traditional, meditative art of boro stitching. Bring in any ancient, sentimental, inspirational pieces of fabric, any scraps you've been holding on to for no obvious reason, and add from my selection of indigo, donated prints, & old denim. We will create a mini bag that you will USE. The gauzier and softer, the better!
