Craft Sunday

No previous sewing experience is necessary. Please bring along an item of clothing that you would like to mend, all other materials will be provided.

Full time designer and self-confessed skin flint, Eilidh Weir, runs All That is Braw making luxury sleepwear and play wear for kids big and small. Join Eilidh and learn how to use some handmending techniques to bring a favourite item of clothing back to life! Taking inspiration from the Japanese traditions of sashiko and boro, as well as darning onto both woven and knitted textiles, you will learn how to use simple stitches to reinforce and strengthen fabric in a beautiful way, making the repair become part of the garments history. Eilidh is a firm believer that taking the time to care for and extend the life of your clothes is the easiest step in the fight against fast fashion and unsustainable practices in the industry.
