Synopses & Reviews
"Unless you wear seamless, zipperless indestructible coveralls, you'd had to deal with the fact that clothes are mortal. We love them but they fail us in myriad ways...the seam that busts when you bend over. The zipper that slips down to reveal your underpants to your co-workers." Raleigh Briggs (Make Your Place) takes us on a mending journey through stocking your supplies, quick fixes, types of knots and stitches (like the classic punk whipstitch!), buttons, mending seams, patching holes, darning holes, hemming, fixing zippers, waterproofing canvas, leather, and nylon, resources, and so much more! As always Raleigh's style is simple, playful, friendly, fun, and builds your confidence.
