Have you ever thought of darning as art? Beautify your mending while extending the usefulness of socks and other garments. Prepare to be inspired as we learn to incorporate colors, patterns, and more to create an intimate objet d�art. We start with simple darning to learn the steps, then venture into stripes, plaids, and twills. Then we learn other techniques such as scotch darning, swiss darning, and various blanket stitch mends, and discuss when (and why) you might use each one.
