Visible Mending Workshop

March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Looking to reclaim that favourite article of clothing?

Join Anna-Marie to learn all about the world of visible mending. In this workshop, you will learn basic hand sewing stitches and how to apply them to your own clothes. We will cover repairs for both woven fabrics and knit fabrics, and also provide the skills for your own visible mending!

No experience or sewing machine required!

Anna-Marie Janzen is the owner of Reclaim Mending. She has been sewing since she was young and loves helping people make their clothes last longer and empowering people to do their own mending work.
