GUILD WORKSHOP: Visible Mending
July 3 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT
PHILADELPHIA MQG WORKSHOP: Visible mending is a current trend which combines many historic handwork techniques, such as Japanese sashiko and boro, Indian kantha, and even All-American flower-power embroidery from the 1960s.
Denim blue jeans and jackets are perfect garments to practice this blend of decorative repair work. Enjoy the process of unplugging, letting go, and stitching without a plan. Learn a series of techniques for adding texture, design, and structural repair to your favorite garments.
This workshop is a 3-hour live-stream event, conducted on Zoom, consisting of live instruction (no recording, please). You should have the current version of Zoom installed on your computer or laptop. Guidance for getting started will be sent in advance of the workshop.
This workshop is hosted by the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild.
