Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Make It Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Love bridges the gap between life in a disposable culture and the basic skills needed to save money and live more sustainably. This book teaches you how to extend the lives of the things you love by repairing clothing, preserving home-grown food, and even repairing your kitchen sink. Raleigh Briggs takes her longtime commitment to community building through the DIY movement and shares her valuable experience with the reader through a conversational tone in her hand drawn and illustrated guide.

Synopsis:

A spiritual sequel to the do-it-yourself handbook Make Your Place, this is a practical guide to prolonging the lives of cherished items in the home. Tips for mending clothing, preserving the harvest from a home garden, drying herbs and meat, and other money-saving ideas are accompanied by humorous handwritten anecdotes and illustrations. This manual is a treasured addition to the library of anyone interested in keeping costs down, being more self-sufficient, and cultivating new skills.
