When I was a young teen, I took a sewing class. For some reason, the skills needed for making a skirt or a jumper did not come easily to me. So, it was with great interest that I picked up this title on skills that I lack. What I found was a gorgeous book, beautifully illustrated and filled with quotes. In it, the authors teach so much that one needs to be able to mend, beginning with the basic threading a needle. It becomes clear that mending is also full of metaphor for life.
We are entering a time when popular wisdom is suggesting that we reuse and recycle our clothes rather than always buying new things. So, this book on sewing and more is quite timely.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this lovely book. All opinions are my own.
