Visible Mending

$24.00

Visible Mending : A Modern Guide to Darning, Stitching and Patching the Clothes You Love is the newest book from Arounna Khounnraj (also the author of Punch Needle - one of our go-to books for punch needle rug hooking). We all have that favorite pair of jeans - no matter how baggy or worn they might become. In the movement against throw-away culture and fast fashion, learn how to pick up a needle and rediscover the forgotten techniques and the joy of mending.

In Visible Mending, Arounna explores why we should mend, and how to mend a variety of different fabrics. Work through the illustrated step-by-step instructions that will demystify mending techniques and discover how these can be easily applied to old
items to give them a fresh, modern look. Packed with skill-based projects, this book reveals how to patch jeans, embroider over tears, dye stains and use the Japanese art of Sashiko. Visible Mending is a book for those who want to learn how to make the most of their wardrobes, be less wasteful, more sustainable and add a personal touch to their garments.

Arounna Khounnraj is a Canadian artist and maker based in Toronto, where she emigrated with her family from Laos at the age of four. While her education includes a Masters in fine arts, it was through subsequent residencies that she found her current focus in fibre arts. In 2002 she started Bookhou, a multi-disciplinary studio with her husband John Booth, together they explore a variety of printing and embroidery techniques through making utilitarian objects such as bags, home goods and textiles.
