Mending Matters Book

"Mending Matters: Stitch, Patch, and Repair Your Favorite Denim & More" by Katrina Rodabaugh.

Mending Matters explores sewing on two levels: First, it includes more than 20 hands-on projects that draw on traditional stitching. It does all this through just four very simple mending techniques. In addition, the book addresses the way mending leads to a more mindful relationship to fashion and to overall well-being. Katrina Rodabaugh explores mending as a metaphor for appreciating our own naturally flawed selves, and she examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills, self-reliance, and confidence, all gained from making things with our own hands.

Contains 22 how-to projects; six essays on slow fashion; twelve artist quotes; extensive resource lists; 200 color photographs.
