Beauty in imperfection -- this is the very heart and soul of Boro stitching. In this class we will use simple running stitch and beautiful little scraps of fabric to make a patch to embellish a garment of your choice. We'll also show you how to mend and embellish directly onto your garment. Visible mending of jeans, shirts, and denim jackets is all the rage right now.  Boro stitched garments and household objects sell for hundreds of dollars.  You can create your own original hand-sewn creation for a fraction of the cost with the knowledge gained in this class.  And no perfect stitching required!

 

Level: advanced beginner- should know how to thread a needle and be able to use scissors. Appropriate ages: children aged 12 or older and adults

  • Managing the sashiko thread skein
