NEW MEND MINDFULLY KITS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN APRIL/MAY 2019
Whether you’re a seasoned seamstress or have never picked up a needle and thread, the Mend Mindfully Kit invites you into a practice of restorative stitching and gentle artistic exploration. Each kit is one-of-a-kind and contains enough elements to create many of the pieces you see here, at the mending space on Instagram, or a unique expression all your own!
I find each element in local and global reclamation shops, so you can be sure that every piece in your kit comes from trusted, small-scale sources who practice sustainability, provide fair wages, and uphold quality.
The May 2019 kit includes the following items:
a curated variety of quality vintage and reclaimed textiles, measurements vary, 3” x 5” and smaller
1 needle and several strands of embroidery floss
3 unique vintage buttons
a 19th century object found in an archeological dig in Latvia
1 rusty object
5 chicory-stained sustainably harvested beads
12-inch length of natural, undyed sari ribbon
2-foot length of jute twine
a muslin cotton drawstring bag naturally dyed with chicory root and black tea
a smooth river stone
a postcard with the mend mindfully poem on one side and mindful mending prompts on the other side
The Mend Mindfully Kit is a joyful offering, lovingly curated with care and curiosity. I can’t wait for you to begin creating with your kit!
Please contact me if you have any questions about the mend mindfully kits.
For this remnant, for this twine,
For this sacred, simple line
We are the ones who mend.
