Event description

Description

In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of decorative stitching, sashiko, and a practical boro-style stitching, a visible mending technique. These trendy skills are useful for repairing clothes and textiles and for adding your own touch to old clothes and thrift store finds. Diana will walk through the basics on how to design and stitch a range of decorative sashiko patterns and how to use visible mending to repair clothing and linens. Participants are encouraged to bring a pair of jeans, an item of clothing, or a home textile to visibly mend during the workshop. Scrap material for practice will be provided as well as needles, thread and thimbles.

Diana Cathcart is the owner and designer behind The Textile Creative, LLC. She is a clothing and textile designer who avidly supports the ethical fashion community through her use of natural fiber materials and constant practice in natural dyeing. When she is not arm-deep in a newly fermented vat of indigo, Diana can be found teaching fiber arts to youth and adults in our community or selling her products at local markets. She lives in Durham with her husband, sons and a handful of furry friends.
