Taught by Rhiannon Platt

Rhiannon Platt is at least third generation fiber artist. Raised by seamstresses, crocheters, and fiber artists of all kinds, she picked up her first pair of needles over a decade ago. Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s. In between commissions, she finds time to write patterns and make endless sweaters.

This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

This class will discuss the practical ways to mend your clothes. How do you stretch the fabric without an embroidery hoop? What happens if it’s stretched too much? What are the best needle types to mend different fabrics? All of these questions and more will be answered in our Practical Mending class.  

Please bring an object of clothing (or two) with a hole in it that you'd like to mend, preferably non stretch fabric such as denim, flannel, cotton.
