about

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.
Katrina Rodabaugh is an award-winning artist and crafter working across disciplines to explore environmental and social issues through traditional craft technique. She lives in the Hudson Valley of New York.

Editorial Reviews

“This book is a joy—I love how Katrina combines practicality and a lightness of touch with a deep understanding of the issues that drive the Slow Fashion movement. Her creative, considered, and beautiful approach to mending and making is exactly what we need in this moment of overconsumption and fading connections to our clothing and textiles. Thank you, Katrina, for helping rekindle our love affair with clothes built to last and hold memories.”
