Noguchi's basic rules of mending are that the repair should suit the fabric and its user, and that there are lots of creative ways to create beautifully customised repairs, some subtle, others making a statement.

She provides 13 techniques that show you how to: Apply creative repairs to both knitted and woven fabrics Use yarn, floss, ribbon, and fabric to reinvent well-loved garments. Make understated repairs that add just a touch of contrast, colour, or texture.  Use visible mending techniques for bold repairs.

The 13 illustrated lessons and over 300 colour photos in this book provide detailed examples for all the basic techniques. Lots of variations plus plenty of tips and examples (67 in all) provide you with all the guidance you need to rethink and repair beautifully.
