Utilizing the sewing machine and darning foot we'll learn to repair holes and tears so that they are sturdy and flexible. Perfect for quick fixes to extend the lifetime of your clothing and home goods. We'll prepare the hole/tear for repair, discuss best thread and stitch length, and then get to it!

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
