Slow Clothing: Finding meaning in what we wear First Edition

Textile Beat #ad - We buy thoughtfully, gain skills, and care for what we wear as an embodiment of ourselves. Slow clothing presents a compelling case for why we need to change the way we dress, ­ to live lightly on Earth through the everyday practice of how we wear and care for our clothes. In an era dominated by passive consumption of cheap and synthetic fashion, Jane Milburn arrived at the Slow Clothing philosophy by refashioning garments in her wardrobe to provide meaning and story.

Jane tells her journey to Slow Clothing and provides ideas for you to easily implement. Slow clothing reflects our own style and spirit, independent of fashion cycles. We believe secondhand is the new organic and mending is good for the soul. In return, we are liberated and satisfied. Slow clothing brings wholeness through living simply, creatively and fairly.

Slow Clothing: Finding meaning in what we wear First Edition #ad - . We – the wearers – become original, authentic and resourceful.

Abrams #ad - Mending matters explores sewing on two levels: First, modern, it includes more than 20 hands-on projects that showcase current trends in visible mending that are edgy, and bold—but draw on traditional stitching. In essays that accompany each how-to chapter, and confidence, and she examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills, self-reliance, Katrina Rodabaugh explores mending as a metaphor for appreciating our own naturally flawed selves, all gained from making things with our own hands.

In addition, the book addresses the way mending leads to a more mindful relationship to fashion and to overall well-being. Lots of great projects packed into one little book! It does all this through just four very simple mending techniques: exterior patches, darning, interior patches, slow stitches, and weaving.

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing: A Romance in Stitches and Embroidery from Alabama Chanin and The School of Making Alabama Studio

#ad
#ad
Harry N. Abrams #ad - But when natalie chanin and her alabama chanin and the school of making teams began to look at needlework closely, even seemingly elaborate ones, they could make learning stitches, they realized all stitches are based on geometric grid systems—and by using grids as guides, as easy as child’s play.

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing: A Romance in Stitches and Embroidery from Alabama Chanin and The School of Making Alabama Studio #ad - To simplify learning, the book also includes two plastic stitching cards die-cut with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based. As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another. In the geometry of hand-sewing chanin presents their breakthrough method, featuring illustrated instructions for both right- and left-handed stitchers for more than 100 stitches—from the most basic straight and chain to the more fanciful feather and herringbone; photos of both right and wrong sides; and guidelines for modifying stitches to increase one’s repertoire further.

These reusable cards can be stitched through for practicing just as children use lacing cards to learn to tie shoes or used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric. Lots of great projects packed into one little book! .
