Hand Mending Knits: Repair Techniques for Sweaters at Post Detroit

  • Post Detroit 14500 Kercheval Avenue Detroit, MI, 48215 United States (map)

Fall makes us want to pull out our favorite knitwear. Your favorite sweater, sock, or knit piece is always worth mending and using from year to year. Pull out any knits you may have and bring them on down to mend. During this group workshop, you will learn classic darning and reweaving techniques on knits. You'll have a variety of yarn and thread to chose from for darning and stabilizing.

Elizabeth will guide the group through various tools, materials, and solutions. She will offer help specific to the type of mend required. Everyone will try various stitches and learn how to choose techniques that will make a strong, long-lasting repair.
