Savage Sashiko Denim Mending

August 3: WEDNESDAY EVENING WORKSHOP, 7:00 – 9:30 pm

We all have a beloved pair of jeans or denim jacket — the ones with thread-bare spots from years of wear. Here is your chance to give your denim a new and improved life in this hands-on workshop exploring sashiko embroidery. Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style used for repairs and reinforcements while employing decorative design.

By practicing “mindfulness” through mending, we will create unique designs and patterns.  Just bring your favorite denim pieces and be ready for fun!

Please bring  an article or two of clothing to work with (jeans or other woven fabric, not knitted). Scissors, thread and Sashiko needles will be provided.
