Creative Mending Tips and Ideas

This month, we're talking about making clothes last. In this episode, learn 10 different ways you can mend, adapt, or wear your clothes when they've gotten a little past their prime.

For this month’s issue of Seamwork, we’re talking about lasting. We all want to make clothing that lasts, but what do you do when it starts to get a bit past its prime?

In this episode, we explore 10 different options, from adding visible mending or embroidery to temporary fixes that just let you get a bit more life out of a garment. This episode will probably inspire you to try all sorts of other creative solutions for that less-than-inspiring mending pile you’ve been ignoring.

PLUS! We’re running a giveaway all month for a year of Unlimited Seamwork membership! Just leave us a review on your podcast platform of choice, then click this link to let us know that you did. Giveaway closes at the end of May 2021. And thanks for leaving us a review, it means so much!
