Garment Academy Session 106 Mending

Session 106 Mending

Mending is such an important part of sewing these days as decent clothing becomes harder to find.  Maybe you just need to sew on a button, or fix a hem or patch those jeans. We will cover the types of hems and practice them, mending a hole or worn spots in jeans, and mending different kinds of seams. We will go over the kinds of tools you need for your own personal mending kit. It can save you time and money by learning to do it your self.
