Master simple visible mending techniques that can save your most comfortable jeans.

Visible mending is a growing movement where mending becomes a feature. It’s simply mending that is not trying to hide. The techniques are simple and easy to learn.
What Will I Learn? This is a hands on class. You will learn two basic types of stitches as well as patching techniques.
What Do I Need? There is the option to purchase a pre-prepared kit for this workshop. I have done all the sourcing and preparation for you. Kits are available for an additional $19 NZD + shipping and will be shipped to your address prior to the workshop. If you would prefer to source the items yourself, that is also fine. A supplies list will be sent to you prior to the workshop. All items can be found at a haberdashery store.
Where Can I Use These Techniques? The stitches taught in this course can be used for many different mending tasks – not just on jeans, they can be used to repair all types of non-stretch clothing items.
How does it work? This is a live online workshop. In the week prior to the workshop, you will be sent a Zoom call link. You will be able to interact and ask questions during the workshop.

Why is mending important?
We are hearing so much about the impact of over-consumption. Landfills are straining under the weight of our cast offs. There needs to be another way.
Learning to mend is a great place to start. It not only teaches valuable hands-on skills, but also helps us to begin to value and appreciate our belongings.
When we desire and appreciate the things we already own, we can turn away from mindless consumption and begin to feel truly content.
I’d love to help you begin on your Visible Mending journey – this creative endeavour is hugely rewarding.
The techniques are beginner friendly and achievable even for those who have never sewn before.
