About the event
Learn to repair your ripped jeans and hole-y shirts with Alexis Giger of Little Cliff, a St. Louis-based mending and clothing repair studio. In this class, students will learn how to repair holes in woven garments using traditional mending and patching techniques. Participants will learn how to make their repairs nearly invisible, or they can choose to experiment with decorative visible mending. Each student is encouraged to bring their own garments to troubleshoot and experiment with. The goal is to extend the lives of clothing according to each wearer's style! All sewing supplies and practice materials are provided, and you will go home with the tools needed to mend your own garments.
