Free mending workshops planned at the Lake County Library

LAKEPORT, Calif. — The Lake County Library provides access to free online and in-person workshops to enrich the lives of the public.

Starting in December, Lakeport Library’s Fabric Club will present four “mending” workshops on the first Saturday of the month.

The workshops will cover subjects from hemming to buttons and holes.

The public is invited to attend the first workshop on Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Lakeport Library from 10 a.m. to noon.

“Bring your mending and your questions,” said Amy Patton, who runs the Fabric Club out of Lakeport.

Mending will be the subject of the Fabric Club for the next four months. Each mending workshop will focus on a different skill.

The first workshop will cover hemming; attendees will learn to machine or hand-sew a hem. The next workshop will cover buttons as well as making and fixing holes. Contact Amy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to register.

The Fabric Club meets monthly, covering a variety of subjects: sewing, quilting, embroidery, fabric-folding and other fabric crafts.

The library shares a stash of fabrics and threads with attendees, but club members bring their own projects, sewing machines, and supplies. Share your knowledge and skills, learn from others, and create new projects.
