Mindful Mending: Where To Rescue Your Pre-Loved Items

This week we were featured by Crunchy Tales in their article on mindful mending. 
 
"Not so long ago, people used to learn basic sewing skills in order to repair and make their clothes last as long as possible. As a modern society, though, we have become less inclined to make do and mend because the advent of fast fashion has made clothes so affordable that there is no incentive to repair them..."
 
But a little snag in our shirt doesn’t mean we need to ditch our go-to button-down just yet. By taking a few moments to mend an article of clothing and giving it a second life, we can not only preserve our pre-loved items but also help keep textiles out of our landfills."
 
Our mending services were featured as part of the article. Click here to read the full piece.
