Today I’m speaking with Kate Sekules, the author of MEND! A Refashioning Manual and Manifesto. Kate is a writer, mending educator, activist, and historian. It’s true, she’s doing a PHd in material culture and mending, and design history -- she will be a Dr. of mend culture!
We talk about the untold history of mending, why visible mending is a revolution, and the mending community today. And if you like this one, you’re going to love her book -- it’s full of instructions for mending with photos, & stitch illustrations, and vintage lovers - you need this book for the detailed guide to dating pieces alone! It’s so good.
Alright, let’s jump into our conversation. Thanks for listening, let’s dive right in!
