“Nuitsugi” Workshops in Santa Fe 1/22/2023
January 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Through this “Nuitsugi” class, you will explore various mending techniques in the kimono-making process with Maki Aizawa. The sewing techniques are very functional and practical, yet by using the techniques of kimono making, they can be applied to delicate fabrics such as silk, fine thin cotton, and linen. Bring an item of clothing or a cotton tote bag to practice these techniques on. “Nui” means to sew, and “tsugi” means to connect. Let’s create something beautiful together! All levels are welcome. Maki will provide Japanese patching fabric. Please bring a materials fee of $25 to be paid directly to the instructor.
- Needles (We will use a specific needle suitable for kimono-making)
- Thread (Silk and Cotton)

- A project to mend (such as denim/cotton/silk pants, dress and shirt, hat or bag)
