Meet your instructor:
Anna-Marie Janzen is a local seamstress who specializes in mending. She was taught to sew starting at the age of 3 by her grandmother, and has loved it ever since. Mending was always a part of her understanding of what it means to own and wear clothes, and she brings this to the public through her business, Reclaim Mending.
