Fight Moths with Craft!

So there seems to be a moth problem in this fair, yet chilly city and favorite sweaters and socks are breezier than they should be this time of year. Instead of scrapping them, mend them with the age old technique of darning!

The Toronto Church of Craft is hosting a darning workshop with wool connoisseur Becky Johnson. Bring in your old, your haggard, and your much loved woolens and learn how to make them wearable for another season of deep freeze.

We’ll be congregating at Heartbeat 960 – 960 Queen St. West (map) on Saturday, January 16 from 1pm to 4pm.

Drop on by, and mend! We’d love to see you out of hibernation!

    hey everyone,

    if you’ve got an old lightbulb (or, a new one) to use as a darning bulb, bring it! if you’ve got more than one, bring it, too!

    there’ll be a few on hand, as well as darning needles, but supplies are kinda limited and sharing is just a nice thing to do.

    see you saturday!

    I have just had to do the same with one of my husband’s nrlaey new M & S socks but sadly without an egg – I just had to use the back of my hand. I am not sure I did as good a job as you but we’ll have to see how mine lasts! Have a good trip and its good to know your Dad is recovering well.
