Climate and economic change is making many of us rethink the ways we use resources by reusing and repairing our clothes, which has become a mark of pride and style. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment. It makes your favorite clothing even more personal and saves it from landfill. Twelve darning Techniques are covered in detail with step-by-step instructions include: Seed stitch, square darning, Reversible darns, Seed and square darn, Triangular darns, English darning, Accordion darning, Appliqué, Reverse appliqué, Chain darning, Honeycomb Darning and the decorative Tambourine darning. Ten chapters cover mending sweaters, shirts, denim, items in the home as well as accessories, such as scarves and bags. This is the first English edition of the cult darning book by Hikaru Noguchi, who has become the guru of visible darning in Japan. This detailed, step-by-step guide makes the methods easy to follow, even for non-sewers. The stylish photography highlights the artistic and minimalist style of the designer's work. -- from Amazon.
