Whether your handknits have holes or your favorite jeans have gone weak in the knees, spinning for mending can allow you to make the perfect yarn for your project. Repairs are sometimes invisible and sometimes gloriously visible, and this gives us loads of options for pairing fiber choices and yarn designs for specific purposes. Join Kate to learn some of the longstanding mending “rules” and when you might choose to break them. See many of Kate’s mends, try a few of your own with yarn spun in class, and leave with a spinner’s mending kit!
