We’ve been talking a lot about patches lately. From the simplest square to the most complex applique, patches not only keep us whole as we wear out and fix us when we become slightly unraveled, but also show off the creative and original ways we put ourselves back together again. There is the ever-popular pant crotch patch, the slightly more daring punk rock patch, the applique design (read: I spilled juice right there, but you’d never be able to tell) patch, and a million more to cover knees, elbows, bums, and all manner of mishaps. So it is with great joy that I invite you to SRNYC’s Patch Perfect Workshop this Friday at the Textile Arts Center’s Fashion’s Night Out: Slow Fashion. We are proud to be a part of such a cool event, which will run from 6-11pm and spotlight all manner of local handmade fashion (our workshop starts at 8:30, and we’ll be right next to the ever famous Bags for the People). The TAC is at 505 Carroll St in Park Slope, a three block walk from the Union Street R train. We won’t be able to meet at our regularly scheduled SR third Sunday meeting this september due to scheduling conundrums, so we do so hope to see you there and spread the word! SR will be back at Spacecraft on the third Sunday of October, so come make some kick-ass Halloween costumes. We’ll bring the candy.
