The workshop covers: In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn the art of denim repair, transforming those rips and tears into a conversation starter. Grab your ripped up jeans and let's make them wearable again.

  • Dive into the basics of visible mending – no more hiding imperfections, let's celebrate them!
  • Get creative with vibrant fabric scraps.
  • Learn mending techniques, from basic stitches to decorative designs.

Workshop Includes:

  • Everything you will need to create a new work of art from an old piece.
  • Snacks and beverages from Ponnopozz.

You can also bring a  denim jacket, woven pants, or button down shirts. Garments with minimal stretch and made from natural fibers (cotton, linen, hemp) are recommended. If you're not sure what to bring, just ask!

Some sewing experience is recommended, but if you’re feeling adventurous, don’t hesitate to join! This class is all about embracing imperfections and turning them into something unique. Your denim will thank you, and you'll leave with skills that will have you looking at clothing repairs in a whole new light.

Nandi (rhymes with blondie) Duszynski got her start in designing and crafting at a young age. She attended design school at Iowa State University and completed her degree in fashion design at the Art Institute of NYC. Nandi moved back to the midwest in 2011 and has lived in Chicago since 2015. She started her business BLISS JOY BULL in 2010 from a desire to reduce waste and use unwanted materials. In early 2021, Nandi began teaching sewing classes virtually. Over the years many people have come up to her during craft shows saying they “Don’t even know how to sew on a button”. With that in mind, along with the knowledge of overproduction, overconsumption, and lack of sewing skills, she developed a visible mending class. Nandi strives to make sewing simple, bringing joy to the clothing we wear by making it last longer. Nandi teaches sewing classes virtually, the Chicagoland area, and takes commissions for clothing repair.
