Darn It! Denim Repair Clinic

$45 + $10 Materials Fee

In this workshop we will explore the technique of darning on the sewing machine to reweave holes and tears in your jeans. Holes in our jeans are an opportunity to experiment with creative expression and reinforcement to extend their life. The introduction of spandex in jeans does wonders for comfort but severely cuts down the lifespan of jeans which leads to more frequent replacement - or hopefully, now, repairs! Students should bring 1-2 pairs of jeans with holes in the knees, seat, or crotch.

Students will learn:

  • Machine settings and adjustments for darning

  • Fabric stabilization

  • Denim thread color matching and layering

  • Machine darning

Ticket price includes the Darn It! Kit which contains:

  • 2 colors recycled polyester sew all thread

  • Denim patches for repairing holes

  • Shapeflex Interfacing

  • Sulky Water Soluble Tear-Away Stabilizer

Ticket price includes all the materials and supplies that will be used in class.
