Pinking shears no more! A serger (or an overlock machine, if you are fancy like that) will cut the fabric and finish the edge all in one fell swoop of the presser foot. For January mending night we will have a serger on site to help you recycle old knits into cozy scarves, hats, and mittens.
Of course we will still have tools on hand for any mending projects, but if you’ve never used a serger before, I implore you to sew a seam or two.
WORN’s Thursday Night, Your Stockings Needed Mending
January 12 (and the first Thursday of every month), 7 to 10 p.m.
