Make & Mend

Jan 31, 2022 - Feb 28, 2022

Every Monday from 4pm- Fireside Lounge 

The community is invited to bring their needlework and join Erin, Kristina, and Rachel for a relaxing time visiting whilst knitting, crocheting, or hand-stitching by the fire.  This free-form event is meant to bring neighbors together around a shared interest in textile arts. 

Not a workshop, more of an old-time “sewing bee”, the Stitch & Bitch sessions began at Erin’s family’s restaurant, Nepenthe, in Big Sur, as a way to pass the time during the slow winter months. Now the sessions have evolved into community-building gab-fests, where techniques are exchanged freely via the “hive-mind”. Bring your project, or start something new, grab a hot cider at the bar, and join us by the fire for a relaxing and fun Monday evening.
