Event description
Attend this workshop to learn how to patch that hole in your favourite sweater using simple sewing techniques.

About this Event

Did your dog chew a hole in your favourite sweatpants? Or have you always wanted to make a quilt for a loved one but did not know where to even start? Then come on over (virtually) and stitch together something great in this #Dare2Sew workshop, hosted by @cass.iocovelli.

What is #Dare2Workshops?

Through LGBT YouthLine’s #Dare2Workshops, you will participate in entry-level workshops designed to teach the ABC’s of a variety of different skills, knowledges, and talents. Pick the ones that appeal to you, and forget the ones that don’t – but don’t be intimidated by your perceived lack of ability. Everyone is here to learn and try new things together so, not being "the best" but daring to go on anyway is the number one requirement for participation!

In this workshop, participants will learn basic stitches and sewing how-tos. The leader will guide the participants through different sewing techniques that can be used to darn clothing and create new pieces. We will also start our own project together that participants will have the skills to complete by the end of the workshop.

Materials required:

  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Any fabric

About the host:

Cass is a student, a performing & visual artist, and a Winnie-the-Pooh enthusiast. If not studying, singing, or sewing, they can often be found in the closest ravine searching for new frog friends. Cass is passionate about forming community care and sustainable skillshares in any way they can learn.
