Event Overview

Give new life to worn fabrics with the art of boro and sashiko mending. The term boro refers to rags or scraps of fabric and describes clothing that has been repaired over and over. Sashiko, literally translated to “little stabs”, is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching. Not only does this visible mending strengthen the fabric, but enhances any flaws (holes or stains) in a beautiful way. Bring in a few pieces of worn clothing or old blankets to repair with this traditional hand stitching. Thread and needles will be provided.

    I love taking classes in the space at Perrenial. The class was fun, and the instructor was kind and experienced. It was nice to have some time to sit and sew with a group of people.
