Idyllwilde Denim Repair Workshop - June 29, 2019
Learn the fundamentals of mending, and the art of denim repair from Alabama designer and textile artist Nadene Mairesse. Nadene will teach you the basic stitches and techniques necessary to repair your worn and torn denim. You will have time to first practice your stitches on a sampler, and then begin work on the denim piece you bring to the workshop.Y ou will leave the workshop with the knowledge and skills to extend the life of your well-loved denim, and other woven cloth goods.
Bring a pair of jeans, or other denim item in need of repair (non-stretch). All materials and supplies will be provided. Nadene will bring patching materials from her Idyllwilde natural dye and design studio, but feel free to bring your own fabric if you'd like! No previous sewing experience is necessary.
Workshop times: 10am - 3 pm
Location: Perch Jewelry Studio
