Meet Make & Mend

Meet Make Mend is monthly event at Madderhouse for crafty individuals to come together to stitch whatever their hearts' desire in each other’s company. Bring your own materials. There's plenty of room for machine sewing, ironing and cutting fabric, or sitting and knitting while your neighbour mends their favourite sock. If you’re looking to carve out some time in your busy life to sew or knit or crochet or mend a stack of clothes, this might be the perfect evening activity for you. Come join us!

Meet Make Mend is a free event held on the last Thursday of every month. Snacks provided (pay-what-you-can).

Co-hosted by Brooke Erickson and Leslie Menagh. Brooke is a sewist in Peterborough who keeps track of her crafty adventures through MakeShiftSew.com and Leslie is Owner-Operator and Chief Cloth Wrangler at Madderhouse.com.

Indigo Dyeing with Christine Roberts

Join Christine Roberts from Modelia for this one-day workshop as we explore the centuries-old technique of shibori indigo dyeing. First learn how to create and maintain an indigo dye vat. Then explore a selection of fabric binding techniques and experience the strong and surprising patterns that emerge.

All materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring along an additional, modest-sized item from home for dying (ie. shirt or tea towel sized as opposed to bedding or bathroom towels as vat space and time are limited). Item must be of natural fibers. Dying can be a messy activity, so be sure to wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind staining.

Tea and snacks provided. Bring or buy your own lunch.
Maximum: 8 participants
$120+HST
