- Mending garments by hand with sewing and darning.
I try to add years of life to worn garments.
Fabric garments such as jeans, skirts and shirts are visibly mended using sewing techniques. Knitted garments are repaired with patching and darning. From holey socks to beloved jumpers and blankets. I also run workshops and retreats where garments are repaired and participants may also feel mended through the meditative act of sewing and darning.
- I am a doctor by training and still practise part time. Along the way I have sought great comfort from time spent mending my clothes. I have learned several techniques which now form the knowledge base I use to repair garments. I run workshops and longer retreats in beautiful places, where I share my love of mending and empower others to mend their garments and prolong the lives of their possessions whilst helping the planet at the same time.
