Make Thrift Mend Book Stitch, Patch, Darn, Plant-Dye, Your Wardrobe
Join the Slow Fashion movement and make mending your jeans and other garments and artful, joyful, and empowering act.
In Make Thrift Mend, slow fashion influencer Katrina Rodabaugh, bestselling author of Mending Matters, teaches readers how to mend, patch, dye, and alter clothing for an environmentally conscious, reimagined wardrobe.
Award-winning artist Katrina Rodabaugh presents a comprehensive guide to building (and keeping) a wardrobe that matters. Whether you want to repair your go-to jeans, refresh a favorite garment, alter or dye clothing you already have—this book has all the know-how you’ll need.
Woven throughout are stories, essays, and a slow fashion call-to-action, encouraging readers to get involved or deepen their commitment to changing the destructive habit of overconsumption. Rodabaugh has an engaged community (her kits are in high demand and her classes sell out quickly) and a proven ability to tempt sewists and nonsewists alike to take up needle and thread.
“When Katrina Rodabaugh gave up ‘convenience in fashion,’ she began what she calls ‘a relationship with commitment instead.’ Circularity, invention, the impulse to create, traditional craft, and modern handwork fuel Katrina’s inspiring book, Make Thrift Mend, indeed.”—Natalie Chanin, The School of Making and Alabama Chanin
