The South Pasadena Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) invites middle and high schoolers to “Stitch It,” a visible mending workshop, on Wednesday, November 16 at 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. in the Library Community Room located at 1115 El Centro Street in South Pasadena. The mending party will be led by Karen Veitch and Lorrie Dieckmann, two South Pasadena residents who are committed to and interested in fostering a culture of recycling, re-purposing, and re-use.

Sharing different stitching options from recommended websites and books, they will demonstrate and guide teens in how to mend clothes and repurpose fabric scraps into patches that could be sewn over clothing holes in this free hands-on workshop. Participants may bring their own jeans to mend or create a patch from fabric scraps provided by the presenters.
