MENDING TUTORIALS

Mending is a valuable skill that allows us to repair clothes and household items, extending their lifespan and saving money.  With the help of our mending video tutorials, you can learn to fix and breathe new life into your favorite clothing and home accessories.

Mending is a life-skill that everyone should know.   Mending involves different techniques, some require a needle and thread and some basic hand-sewing stitches, while others require a sewing machine but only basic machine stitches and knowledge.  And some techniques require no sewing at all.

Our free mending videos cover various clothing fixes such as replacing buttons, patching holes, rehemming pants and replacing waistband elastic.  If you have an heirloom or a much-loved quilt whose binding is frayed or torn, we have a rebinding video to help you fix it.  And what if your favorite shirt is stained, we have a solution for that too.

With the high cost of everything today, collective efforts to value and repair clothes and household items instead of discarding them is gaining momentum.  With our help and these mending videos, you too can learn the art and craft of mending and contribute to this movement.
