stuff mondays – modern mending
A great big guide to stitching, darning and keeping your favourite duds forever.
Here’s a sobering statistic for you: Aussies collectively send over 500 million kilos of clothing into landfill each year. It doesn’t have to be like this, of course. Local lass Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald reckons if we sat down and learned to repair the clothes we already have, we’d be throwing out a heck of a lot less. Her book Modern Mending breaks down a big bunch of crafty techniques, from darning to patching and needle felting, so you can finally fix up that hole in your jumper or little tear in your jeans. Make your nan proud by picking up a copy of Modern Mending online, or throw your hat into the ring to win one of five we’re giving away over here. Best of luck!
