My name is Anita Cazzola, a SOFAAR member, and also the local textile repair person in Annapolis Royal. I work out of the “Mani D’oro” studio.

I wanted to pass along some information about mending workshops that I am facilitating at H’arts in Annapolis Royal on select Sunday afternoons (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm) through the winter (starting November 19, 2023). These may be of interest to SOFAAR members. I will be starting with a basic stitching foundations workshop that is likely not needed for the SOFAAR members, but the following 4 workshops dive into specific repair techniques for mending woven and then knit materials.

Lots of information and workshop registration is here:
