Boro and Sashiko with Julianne Bramson and Carol deBoer

July 24, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM PDT

Stitch along with Carol and Julianne as they dip into the origin of visible mending in the form of the Japanese techniques of Boro and Sashiko. They will show modern interpretations with many samples.

Participants will stitch a small sampler to demonstrate mending techniques in the style of Boro. If you prefer, bring your own project to mend instead of making a sampler. Julianne and Carol will discuss their favorite techniques, tools, and inspirations. A handout with some basic stitching instructions will be sent out after registration. There will be time for questions from participants who want advice on how to mend their precious items.
