Course Description

Work with scraps and pieces of lightweight cotton, linen, and silk to piece together your own design. Learn about the Japanese boro stitch and how a culture of making do and mending grew into a fabric revolution. Learn about stitches and techniques that will bring a contemporary flair to your fiber arts. Hand-sewing tools are provided during the class as well as scissors, threads, and fabrics. If you have your own favorite sewing tools, feel free to bring them. Enough material will be available for you to design one of the following: a scarf, quilt squares, a sampler, a book cover, or an iPad cover. Be inspired by visuals of Japanese farm clothes as you learn about this tradition.     Active Participation
