Visible Mending Class
Thursday, February 16, 5:30 p.m.
We’re looking forward to Celina Moreno’s class on visible mending! Bring articles of clothing with rips or holes, and learn how to fix them while making them look fresh and fun. If possible, bring your own darning needles, thread, scraps, etc. (We’ll have some materials available.) Feel free to bring other in-progress needlework craft projects too.

We still have copies of this month’s Let’s Talk About It book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo. In this multiple prize-winning book, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport.
