Before any stitch is sewn or any patch prepared, I ask myself, “Is this thing in my hands is worth repairing?” When I answer “Yes,” mending is an act of devotion.
Maybe you’re interested in this act of devotion, too. Or maybe you’re just trying to patch a pair of jeans. Either way, welcome. Play around. Read a bit. Come to a workshop or invite me to teach. Mostly, I want you to repair. I want to gather a community dedicated to repair, a Mending Church. With patience, attention, skill, and community, we can learn to mend.
