We are so pleased to offer Katrina Rodabaugh’s beautiful book on mending and creative ways to extend the life of your clothes.
Mending Matters explores sewing on two levels. First, it includes more than 20 hands-on projects that showcase current trends in visible mending that are edgy, modern, and bold—but draw on traditional stitching. It does all this through just four very simple mending techniques: exterior patches, interior patches, slow stitches, darning, and weaving. The book addresses the way mending leads to a more mindful relationship to fashion and to overall well-being. In essays that accompany each how-to chapter, Katrina Rodabaugh explores mending as a metaphor for appreciating our own naturally flawed selves. In addition, she examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills. It teaches us self-reliance and confidence, all gained from making things with our own hands.
Hardcover, 224 pages with 200 color photographs.
