Join Elizabeth Haywood, patternmaker and author of the must-have 'The Dressmaker's Companion' as she introduces the artful stitchery of visible mending, a technique to repair and refresh your favourite things! Elizabeth will lead you in a hand-on workshop where you will learn the current trends in visible mending using only a needle & thread. She will also talk about her book 'The Dressmaker's Companion', an illustrated sewing reference for the person who is comfortable with a sewing machine but wants more! The book contains step-by-step sewing techniques, fitting advice, patternmaking and ideas. Bring along your favourite pair of jeans or an item you'd like to renew! Books available for sale.
