Darning is a sewing technique used to fix holes in fabric or knitting. Once you know how to darn you can keep all those smartwool socks much longer. Stop by this drop-in session and Molly McMullen-Laird will show you how to get started on repairing woolens that need a few stitches to keep them in working order. Please bring a piece to work on plus some pieces of yarn to match, a needle with a large eye and a hard surface like a jar or water bottle or a real darning egg if you have one! She’ll teach you the very basics of darning as she learned it from her mother. As a participant you will take your garment home with the repair already started to finish it on your own and then go on to mend everything in your house!

Darning is an easy thing that everyone can use so if you don’t know how, then stop by and I will teach you. It is simple.”
