What a neat book! Filled with the basics and beyond, Mend it Better is a toolbox for anyone who's hesitated to get rid of something previously loved just because it's stained, has a hole, is a bit outdated, has a bleached spot, etc. It's a great source to have on hand these days, whether your concern is saving a much-loved garment, helping the environment, or preserving the contents of your wallet. Roach writes in a non-threatening manner, explaining everything in just enough detail for the truly clueless to be comfortable and yet manages to keep those who have some subject knowledge interested as well. After just a quick read through of this book, I've already found several ideas and projects I want to try and am on the lookout for more ideas every time I sit down to do laundry or go through boxes of last season's clothes. I can't wait to sit down with this one and spend more time giving it a good, cover-to-cover read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
