About this experience

Do you have a hole in your favorite pair of jeans? Are you looking for a way to jazz up an old jacket? Try Sashiko mending, the original visible mending technique! 


In this class you will learn:



  • How to do a running stitch (sewing life skill acheivement unlocked!)

  • The Sashiko history, method, and form

  • How to prep your fabric and plan future projects


Get hands-on in class mending your very own piece, and go home with our Sashiko starter set (large and small Sashiko needles, a palm thimble, and a water soluble pencil) ready for your next project. Leave class with all your newfound knowledge AND skills to fix all those pairs of jeans in the coolest way possible!  


Optional: Bring your own item you would like to start mending to class (we recommend items made of tightly woven cottons and natural fibers such as denim, canvas, or linen).

Ashley enjoys bringing life back into her well-loved garments, especially her handmade items, by mending. Her mending pile seems to only grow these days, thanks to her dog Josie and friends dropping off their items into her capable hands.
