Mending and embroidery are simple yet powerful ways to prolong the life of your clothes and express yourself. Once you learn needlework, you no longer see damaged clothes as a problem—they become a creative opportunity. Even better, these handicrafts keep you curious and passionate because the learning never ends!

We've had the honor of hosting embroidery and mending tutorials with several talented makers. The techniques and ideas they share are sure to inspire your next project. Follow along using any of our Deadstock Mending Kits. If you already have darning supplies, refill your deadstock stash with rescued Pima cotton, alpaca wool, or baby alpaca yarns
