How To Darn To Repair a Hole


Welcome to our first episode of our online mending tutorial series...

Many of our customers tell us they wish they knew how their repairs had been done, and so we decided to take this downtime to show you! The aim of our tutorial series is to help you make the most of your time at home, and your wardrobe. If you are able to switch off from distractions, and fully engage, it is also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, and increase feelings of calmness and wellbeing.
Want to start your mending & repair tools collection? Grab yourself our Darning Needle Setwhich includes a collection of the essential needles that you'll need to darn holes in all types of fabric, plus a simple guide so you can get darning with confidence. 
So, without further ado, we invite you to join us on our zero waste journey by helping your wardrobe last longer. On today's episode, Chris and Ellie will teach you all about darning, a weaving technique to fill a hole in any garment. We are using a contrasting colour to make a statement repair, but if you colour match your thread, this technique can be invisible in some fabrics.
