a stictch in time saves nine......

I recently had the opportunity to peek at this book, it is a delightfully illustrated reminder of days of yore. Taking me on a journey of women who use to pause prior to throwing away a ripped sock or torn dress.  It invokes simpler time when we did nto run to malls or shopping center, rather ran to our sewing baskets.........
Enjoy!

I ordered it when I saw it on Alice Cantrell's site. I have another book on mending which is think is helpful for modern fabrics, "Mend It!" by Maureen Goldsworthy. It's helpful to get into a habit of mending. We're in such a throw-away society, aren't we?
