Make Thrift Mend: Stitch, Patch, Darn, Plant-Dye & Love Your Wardrobe by Katrina Rodabaugh

Slow fashion influencer Katrina Rodabaugh follows her bestselling book, Mending Matters, with a comprehensive guide to building (and keeping) a wardrobe that matters. Whether you want to repair your go-to jeans, refresh a favorite garment, alter or dye clothing you already have—this book has all the know-how you’ll need. Woven throughout are stories, essays, and a slow fashion call-to-action, encouraging readers to get involved or deepen their commitment to changing the destructive habit of overconsumption. Rodabaugh has an engaged community (her kits are in high demand and her classes sell out quickly) and a proven ability to tempt sewists and nonsewists alike to take up needle and thread.

Katrina Rodabaugh is an award-winning artist and writer working across disciplines to explore environmental and social issues through craft techniques. Her writing and work have appeared in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Martha Stewart Living,Mother Earth Living, Sewing Magazine, Sunset magazine, Sweet Paul MagazineTaproot magazine, and more. Rodabaugh teaches and speaks at craft gatherings across the United States, including to standing-room only crowds at the popular New York State Sheep & Wool Festival. Rodabaugh currently lives in the Hudson Valley of New York.
