Stitch, Patch, and Repair your favourite denim & more

Mending Matters includes more than 20 hands-on projects that showcase visible mending techniques that are edgy, modern and bold. 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 with fashion and 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. She examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills, self-reliance and confidence, all gained from making things with our own hands.
