About the event
Transform what was previously a flaw in a garment - such as a hole or stain - into a beautiful eye-catching addition to the original garment with some simple embroidery stitches. This repair technique, also known as ‘Visible Mending’, is a valuable skill to add to your mending knowledge base. Holly will show you some embroidery stitches perfect for covering up small imperfections, such as french knots, lazy daisies and satin stitch.
