#BookFaceFriday “Joyful Mending” by Noriko Misumi

It’s a #BookFaceFriday for #MendingMonday!

Discover the joy of working with your hands to reinvigorate or transform your worn-out clothing in this week’s #Bookface title, Joyful Mending by Noriko Misumi (Tuttle Publishing, 2020). Adding visible stitching or patches to your threads not only adds artistry to your wardrobe but also extends the life of your clothes and keeps them out of the landfill. #MendingMonday, #MendAndMakeDo, and #VisibleMending are some of the hashtags used on social media to draw attention to refurbished pieces the mender is particularly proud of and are part of an ongoing sustainable fashion trend.

“…a resource as practical as it is whimsical… Misumi visually guides readers through visible and invisible mending techniques that bring new life to well-loved materials…Anyone wishing to preserve and repair their favorite clothes will find plenty of ideas and useful techniques here.”

    I left this comment before to no avail. Your bookface looks way better if you use an actual book instead of the reader. But i guess if you can’t, okay.

      We agree Debra! At this time, some of our staff are working from home, so we are using this period to highlight our digital collection.
