In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of decorative stitching, sashiko, and a practical boro-style stitching, a visible mending technique. These trendy skills are useful for repairing clothes and textiles and for adding your own touch to old clothes and thrift store finds. Diana will walk through the basics on how to design and stitch a range of decorative sashiko patterns and how to use visible mending to repair clothing and linens. Participants are encouraged to bring a pair of jeans, an item of clothing, or a home textile to visibly mend during the workshop. Scrap material for practice will be provided as well as needles, thread and thimbles.
