An Invitation to a time of renewal.. around the winter solstice.. to gather in numbers and devote a day to the art of resourceful, adorning, darning..

After a wonderful weekend of darning last winter.. we welcome you to join us once again for an inspired day of deep-winter nurture. Bring along your favoured project pieces.. anything at all.. that you wish to rectify.. or beautify.. with a deft touch of loving, creative stitch.  
Whether it's a favoured treasure you'd like to tease away from the brink of structural decay.. or perhaps something with minor, or, no imperfections at all..
Utility meets beautification in this not to be missed day of coming together in celebration.. and the weave of stitch.

June 24th  10am-4pm   $45 for the day..               Please  contact us  for enquiries..                       

What to expect..
Beginning with an introduction and overview of darning methods, you will have the opportunity to assess which technique best suits yourspecific needs.. This will be a time to share in the collective spirit and ingenuity of the group.. set to a task of sharing and supporting one another in each of our individual projects. Retreat into a deeply inward place among friends.. 

Warming fires will be crackling.. apple cake and cups of tea.. & chai.. will be flowing.  A Not to be missed day.. to darn & yarn.

You will need to bring along your own project pieces.. whether that's a favourite garment.. a pair of socks, jumper or shawl, or pair of jeans etc.. or perhaps a quilt, cushion, or cloth doll.. it's really up to you. If you have any questions.. please contact us for advice.
Please bring along suitable remnants, threads or yarns, if you have them, scissors, thimble and darning mushroom if you use one. Small curated bundles and threads can be purchased if needed, needles by the packet, for a small fee.
