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.

I've been patching and extending the life of my favorite wearables, etc. for decades and it never grows boring. You really don't need any special equipment or know-how to become proficient at this. This book is an excellent how-to for everyone -- beginners and experts alike! Her artisan approach is quite appealing, instructions clear and inspiring.
