Overview:The Art of Repair: Mindful mending: how to stitch old things to new life - For Molly Martin, it all started with a pair of white woollen socks. Her favourite pair. When the heels became threadbare and a small hole appeared on the right toe, her mother got out her grandmother's old darning mushroom and showed her how to mend them.'I still remember the feeling of satisfaction when I finished them.'In The Art of Repair, master repairer Molly Martin explores the humble origins of repair and how these simple sewing techniques offer not just a practical solution but a philosophy for life. Using her own charming illustrations, she teaches us the basics of the craft - Kantha, the running stitch used by Bengali women to sew together discarded cloth scraps, saris and dhotis; and Sashiko, the ancient Japanese practice of repairing workwear using a 'boro' or 'little scrap' - and shows how the art of mending can turn something old and worn into something new and meaningful.The teachings of this book will stay with you long after you put down your needle and thread; it offers an antidote to our increasingly disposable lifestyle, encouraging us to reconnect not just with the everyday objects in our environment but also with ourselves.
