08/03 • THERAPY PANTS • Slow Stitch Embroidery Embellishments, August 3 (1-4 pm) Saturday$150.00
Join us for an afternoon of slow stitching and mending well-worn clothing. Artist and designer Susan Kim is coming to Cattywampus to teach embroidery embellishments as a creative expression on your treasured pants (or other clothing item). Susan credits her grandmother (who raised her and her sisters in Korea) for instilling in her a sense of aesthetics. “She never pointed out that this was a nice way of doing things, it’s just what she did,” Susan says. There is a story to be told through our clothing. We will celebrate the making and the worn history of our clothes through these embroidered patterns. Tea and snacks will be provided along with all the embroidery materials. You just need to bring an item of clothing to stitch.
