Last Saturday’s Repair Cafe was great fun. We met lots of new faces some of whom came along having seen this in The Argus:
Izzie our jewellery expert showed people how to fix their necklaces and bracelets
Helping Hannah add new beads in with the remains of a necklace which had exploded to create a lovely new bracelet.
Whilst in darning corner…
Tom of Holland showed others how to mend the holes in their clothes:
Hedvig mended the elbow of her sweater
Irene repaired a moth hole with a lovely contrasting colour of thread
And Susanne used a red to pick out and match some of the colour details in her sweater
I learnt how to use a combination of blanket stitch and feather stitch to darn up moth holes in a favourite woollen dress to create a second layer of pattern over the dresses pattern.
The sewing machine was put to good use as usual
And Izzie won Fred’s heart through helping him to mend his pockets!
