Visible Mending from 3191Q Issue No. 15 —SCB



It’s great to be back in this space with MAV, and I am excited to share that our latest issue of 3191 Quarterly, Issue No. 15, is in the shop (hope you subscribers have been enjoying it)!

It is our CREATE & MAKE issue, and we had a great time putting it together—sharing the many ways we infuse our days with creativity and craft. This year, I became fascinated with mending, and now no frayed edge is safe from my patches. I share some of my techniques and tools in Issue No. 15, and I hope it inspires some of you to look at the longevity and utility of textiles in your home and closet in new ways.


I have been enjoying a bit of a staycation this summer, completing projects at home—painting walls, minimzing and organizing, and mending and repairing. I took my basket of mending supplies and went to work on my favorite duvet cover which was oft washed and beginning to fray in spots. I love the idea that I will continue to patch and reinforce it, a bit at a time, until it becomes an entirely new textile.
