Mending Monday! Sewing Workshop with Remake

April 24, 2023 , 5:30 pm 7:00 pm EDT

Do you have clothes in your closet that you once loved, but you no longer reach for when you get dressed? Maybe a stain, a tear, a loose button, or general boredom with the item has made you fall out of love?

Bring these garments to The Outrage on April 24th and you’ll learn a variety of skills to renew these items. We’ll have patches, needles, thread, and sashiko sewing patterns.

We’ll have a handful of sewists on hand to share their skills with you – no matter what level you’re at in your mending journey. Whether you’ve never picked up a needle and thread before or if you’re more experienced and interested in adding to your skillset, we invite you to join us!

REMAKE

Holly has her own upcycling business where she turns dresses into jumpsuits. She has a knack for looking at garments with her imagination and completely transforming them.

Wendy makes and mends her and her children’s clothes and will teach you traditional mending techniques she’s used for years to extend the lives of items in her wardrobe.

Carly will show you the ease and endless possibilities of sashiko mending techniques. With only a needle and thread and a pattern transfer, you can add strength and delicate, but eye-catching stitches to any garment in need of stabilizing.

THE OUTRAGE

Kerry has been embroidering and mending her own clothes for years, embracing the imperfections to get a little more life out of favorite pieces that might have seen better days.

We aim to make this event as inclusive as possible by offering sliding scale tickets. If you would like to participate and don’t have the capacity to pay, please email us at community@the-outrage.com for free entry.

This project was supported through the Donation and Reuse Program with funding provided by the District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment.
