Twelve easy, well-illustrated lessons demonstrate how to mend clothes in the comfort of one's home. Chapters include basics from threading a needle and sewing on buttons to repairing seams and fixing seams and buttonholes, ironing techniques and repairing broken zippers, all done without a sewing machine. The easy to read, step-by-step language allows anyone to sew ripped hems, replace missing buttons, fix sweater snags and so much more, replacing unwearable garments back into their wardrobe. Proving that mending is an easy, money and time saving skill that anyone--men, women, children--can do, this reference is an essential resource for any household.
