Visible mending is a way to save and adorn your favorite jeans while doing your part to help save the planet from unnecessary waste. In this class, you will learn to patch and then embellish the holes in your blue jeans with sashiko, a Japanese method of stitching used to reinforce and decorate fabric. Two hand sewing stitches, the whip stitch and the running stitch, will be covered in class.
