Think twice before throwing out your damaged clothing! Sustainable fashion sewist, Julia Urrea, will teach you the benefits of visible mending. This includes instruction on various hand-sewn stitches such as the back stitch, blanket stitch, satin stitch, darning, and sashiko. These techniques guarantee your clothing a longer lifespan and allow you to apply your own creativity to the mending process. No prior hand sewing or mending experience is needed. 

This two hour workshop on visible mending will be held on July 9th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm in our sewing area at Community. This workshop is available to ages 13+ with a maximum class size of 10 students. 

The instructor, Julia Urrea, works at Community as a redesigner and alterations seamstress. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in fabric design and is pursuing a career in sustainable textiles and fashion.

What to expect: Students will be provided a tutorial on hand stitching techniques and how to apply these techniques to mending. Students will have the opportunity to begin applying those techniques to their own personal clothing items during the workshop. 

What you'll need: Please bring two or three well-loved garments that are in need of repair. 

Embroidery thread, needles, and fabric patches will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own fabric scraps, if you prefer. This class is on hand-sewn mending techniques and sewing machines will not be used. 

Cancellations may be made up to 24 hours before the class for a full refund. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the class are non-refundable.
