Looking for something to do during the dark days of winter? Join us for our Visible Mending programming! Over 8 weeks beginning January 19 at 2:00 pm, we’ll talk about visible mending and practice several mending techniques. Some examples include felt patches, boro patching, sashiko stitching, weaving, applique, and reverse applique. In the final episode, we’ll make an (optional) drawstring bag.

Episode 1 can be caught up on here: https://youtu.be/Hkird9OjWpI

A limited number of kits will be available which contain some but not all of the materials needed. You do NOT need a kit to participate in this program. We’ll be using simple stitches, basic tools, and scrap fabric that you may already have at home. Please register if you would like a kit. To register for a kit, visit: https://davenportlibrary.libcal.com/event/7406176

All episodes will be saved to YouTube so that you can refer back to any of them at any time and work at your own pace. View the entire series here: http://bit.ly/dpl-visiblemending
