Event description

Description

As part of “Loving them. Repair, ReStyle, ReInvent” series in fashion.

Join us at Designerooms to get hands-on with:

_ Skills for simple repairs
(it sounds too simple maybe, but it's also very practical... fixing hems, repairing broken stitches or little holes)
_ Easy customisation with thread
(small enhancing details that can give our garments a personal touch)
_ More elaborated embroidery ideas
(visible mending, Japanese boro, weaving embroidery and patches, we'll bring options, you choose...)
_ (optional + 80 HKD) Use the sewing machine to make a cloth bag from your embroidery sampler


We will provide an embroidery sampler, but you are also welcome to bring any of your garments to repair or customise during the workshop.


Tickets:
_ Free to stop by, have a look or even ask for advice (please notice that paying attendants will have priority access)
_ 200 HKD to join the workshop including all the materials
_ 280 HKD to include making your cloth bag using the sewing machine
