    Mending Class: Intermediate Visible Darning

    Have you mastered basic darned patches, and feel ready to learn some more advanced darning methods? Yay you!

    Join Erin Eggenburg of wrenbirdarts for darning class and take your knit repair to the next left in this intermediate darning workshop! In this 3 hour workshop, we will cover how-to darn in pattern, shape, and the elusive duplicate stitch technique. Surface Patterns taught will include: twill, plaid, chevron, and learn the technique to repair missing stitches and holes with swiss darning.

    Students will leave this workshop with new ideas for darning, embellishing, and extending the live of beloved clothing.

    Bring your items in need of darning, or use the provided scrap knits to practice these your freshly learned darning skills. Lots of thread and yarn will be provided, but bring your own if you want to work with a particular color or type of yarn. Darning needles also provided.

    Please note: a basic understanding of darning is a prerequisite for this workshop. Before signing up, you should be able to darn a hole, this will not be covered in class. We are also offering a Beginner Darning class that will give you the skills you need to attend the advanced class.

      Very Enjoyable

      I've been wanting to take a class with Erin for a long time and I'm so glad I attended this one at Monster. The time flew by in this playful exploration of darning. I didn't realize darning patterns included so much counting! I'd definitely come back for another class.
