MENDING MATTERS. Stitch, Patch, and Repair Your Favorite Denim & More

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.

In addition, 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, 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.

Katrina Rodabaugh is an award-winning artist and crafter working across disciplines to explore environmental and social issues through traditional craft technique. She lives in Germantown, New York.
