Sewing Repair and Basic Alterations


It’s Earth Day!!! Let’s learn how to fix our clothes instead of throwing them away because they are a bit “worn”. Michelle Lassaline will teach us how to repair our beloved pieces we are not ready to let go of! We will also learn some basic alterations like hemming so our clothes can fit us just the way we like. 🙂

Michelle Lassaline is an interdisciplinary artist living in Seattle, Washington. She holds a BFA from the University of Nevada, Reno in Painting and Drawing. She has been awarded grants from the City of Seattle, Artist Trust, the Nevada Arts Council, and the Sierra Arts Foundation. In 2016, Lassaline became a National Parks Artist-In-Residence, spending time researching and creating artwork at Isle Royale National Park, Michigan, where she encountered a red fox for the first time. She is currently working on a short motion-picture film about a pelican. Lassaline has worked as a professional seamstress repairing outdoor garments and gear at Rainy Pass Repair since 2017.
