SOLD OUT Virtual Nordic Handcraft Workshop: Visible Darning with Maddy Bartsch

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Get ready to tackle the knit items in your mending pile! This class will walk you through the process of darning – using a needle and thread to repair knit garments – and encourage you to show off your mend. We'll cover basic darning concepts and techniques with ample time for practice and any questions. Your sweaters and socks will thank you! Students may also be interested in our Visible Mending Workshop (for woven clothing) on January 21. 

This is a live virtual class taught over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities. 

Kits ($15) are included in the class fee. Each kit includes darning needles, needle threaders, fabric pencil and small ruler. Students must also provide items to mend, thread to match their items and scissors. A darning egg, small embroidery hoop and thimble are optional. Kits will be available for pick up at the American Swedish Institute between March 4-7 or can be shipped for an additional $5 fee. Registration for kit-based classes closes one week in advance on March 2.


This is a participatory class and spots are intentionally limited to allow interaction between students and the instructor. Please call 612-871-4907 to be added to a waitlist.
