MEND: An Embroidery Show

In preparation for my recent Sashiko / Visible Mending workshop, I (Ryan-Ashley) was preparing small samples featuring vintage fabrics and various stitches, and I fell in love with the process. 

It's one thing to mend a well-worn piece whose holes are testaments to a life lived and garment loved, but to intentionally cut and rip holes into fabric only to mend them... the process is incredibly cathartic -- a true practice in meditation. 

So when the June artist had to cancel her exhibit, nothing made more sense -- especially in the wake of the break-in -- than to create this show, and I can't wait to share it with you.
