Service Description

Woollen Mending Class We all have a woollen item that needs mending! Either from general wear and tear or as a result of those pesky moths. Do you have a sweater, hat or pair of gloves or socks that need a new lease of life? Or a treasured piece of knitwear that you don’t want to throw away? Come along and experience the slow art of visible mending for knitwear. During the class we will explore how to mend holes and worn patches using both woven darns and duplicate stitch to create beautiful visible repairs. (We will also show you how to create invisible mends if you’re after a more subtle approach!) All tools and materials for darning will be provided (although participants are very welcome to bring their own). You should bring along a piece of knitwear (jumper, sock, hat, etc.) that you would like to repair or embellish. The techniques we will use are suitable for any knitted fabric (machine or hand-made) and you will leave the class with the skills that you need to continue to breathe new life into your knitwear at home. --- Harriet is an experienced knitter and teacher and the co-owner of Flock, an online yarn and knitting shop based in St Leonards. Harriet runs the Bus Stop Studios 'Knit Club' weekly knitting group which runs Thursday evenings starting in May. She will also be teaching the kids knitting workshop in May half-term and more special summer knit workshops in July and August 10:30 - 1pm at Bus Stop Studios 53 London Road St Leonards on Sea East Sussex TN37 6AY
