Come along to a relaxing and fun workshop and learn how to make the clothes you love last.  You will learn to repair and embellish your clothing making them a delight to wear again. You will learn how to use embroidery, appliqué and patching techniques. 

Stitching is a great life skill which can save you money, save your clothes and reduce your impact on the environment! You will learn some hand stitching techniques that offer lots of creative possibilities for repairing & enhancing your clothes and household textiles.
