On Mending – stories of damage and repair by Celia Pym

“This book is a collection of ten stories damaged garments – plus a rug and two backpacks – that I’ve mended in the last fifteen years. The stories record who the item belonged to, how it was damaged, how it was mended and where it is now.

This book is not a guide to mending techniques…[…]…these stories describe the ways in which clothes and cloth become holed…[…]…and how mending a garment can unstick a stuck feeling.”

Beautifully illustrated in full colour.
