visible mending workshop review 1

On the weekend I did a visible mending workshop hosted by Marion library in Adelaide.

First was a short book talk on The Dressmaker’s Companion, then we got stuck into visible mending.  You may remember I was making samples for this workshop.  You can also view these on Instagram (you’ll have to scroll down a bit).

The twenty five participants were all creative self-starters: I showed them the samples and away they went!  Some brought their own jeans to mend and others made a sample from a square of denim provided.

Here’s a selection for you to enjoy:

Many thanks to Marion library for hosting the event and to Tracey Noah for organising and promoting it.

Cheers!

    Thank you for sharing your journey, your book, and your knowledge and skills with us. It was a delight to meet you, and participate in this workshop.

    I’m looking forward to attending more workshops with you in future, & working my way through your fabulous book ‘The Dressmaker’s Companion: A Practical Guide to Sewing Clothes’.
