Throwing away holey, yet beloved, clothes can sometimes be one of the saddest things, but what if you were able to fix those holes and extend their life? With Mend & Patch, you can learn to take care of your clothes, mending, patching and repairing so you can cherish all your garments.

In the furthest corner of Kerstin and Douglas's store, Second Sunrise in Stockholm, Kerstin has set up a mending studio and so when it's quiet in the shop she can sit there by the sewing machine and give a new lease of life to people's favourite jeans. Some prefer discreet and invisible mendings, others want them to be highly visible and so, with time, mending becomes a part of the history of the clothes and the people who wear them.

Mend & Patch arms you with the skills and ideas you need to mend your own clothes, truly making and keeping them your own, whatever the wear and tear. Find out emergency tips for mending in a hurry, enhance your clothes with decorative 'mends' and learn to mend for and with different materials, including leather, cotton, wool, silk and of course, denim.
