April Fix it course
8th April 1pm-4pm
Stitched Up Stretford Pop Up, Unit 40 Stretford Mall, M32 9BB
During the 3 hour course we will spend the first half looking at the
different types of repairs and troubleshooting how to fix them with
information packs on hand. Then after learning a range of techniques
we will put those skills into practice by visibly mending small denim
patches inspired by the Japanese Sashiko technique.
Using patching and embroidery techniques, we'll help you to create
visible mends that areunique and fabulous.
This workshop is a mix of both hand and machine sewing. You will
learn how to mend your clothes, and a variety of different embroidery
stitches. Suitable for beginners, all equipment and materials will be
provided but do come armed with a notebook and pen!

Please note this course will take place at Stitched Up HQ in Stretford
and not the Boiler House.
