Saturday, March 24th: The Loving Art of Garment Repair and Alteration

Gifting Mended Memories
Cuchifritos (120 Essex St., Manhattan)
Barter, registration required

Bring in a garment that carries a memory that you wish to share with a special person and creatively mend and alter to reflect and express your sensation of time spent in it. It may be the cardigan that you wore at your Grandfather’s funeral or the dress that snagged on the chain link fence on the way to that abandon building with a special someone. Pass on your memories to the recipient of your choosing and see time and thread collide! We will provide sewing materials, and inspiration for alteration and mending techniques.
