                                                                     Erin Eggenburg & Mending Kit

Join one of our favorite embroiderers, Erin Eggenburg of Wrenbirdarts (wrenbirdarts.com) in this fun workshop that blends traditional mending techniques with some modern tricks so that you can mend your jeans into wearable art.

We’ll begin by learning about the specific materials used for visible mending, the basic technique of Sashiko, a Japanese style of stitching, and how this technique applies to specific types of repairs (i.e. the crotch/upper thigh mend). 

 

   

 

Each participant will create their own sashiko stitched denim patch as practice, and learn how to prep a mending area and several options for pattern transfer.

A great class for beginners and seasoned hand-stitchers alike, this workshop combines elements of texture, color, and function to create your own one-of-a-kind patch, or denim mending project.
