Visible mending is a technique which combines Sashiko Mending, Darning, and Embroidery used to repair torn or ripped garments in a unique and beautiful way. This is not a class where you will become an expert on Sashiko Mending or Darning or Embroidery but rather a class where you learn to utilize all three together to extend the life of a beloved garment through repairs and then enhance and embellish it with visible mending. Therefore, this class is not a step-by-step on how to repair things but rather gives you the tools you need to guide your own way. In the first class, Laura will teach you the basic stitches and techniques and then you will spend time discussing how to approach the mending process of a personal garment which needs some attention and care.
