This is the first UK edition of the cult darning book by Hikaru Noguchi who has become a guru of visible darning in Japan. With 12 different darning techniques and 63 inspirational examples, this detailed step by step guide makes the methods easy to follow. The stylish photography shows off the artistic and minimalist style of the designer's work.
Repair, Make, Mend-it's a philosophy, and a good one, if you're a knitter or a crafter of any kind. It's also the subtitle of Hikaru Noguchi's Darning book, now available in an English language edition. Published by Hawthorne Press, the book is a visual stunner, stocked with full color photographs of garments-and other fabrics-that have been given a second chance.
Aside from sweaters, socks, and mittens, Darning demonstrates how to mend denim, upholstery, pillows, shirts, and coats. It's playful, thoughtful, and incredibly easy to follow. Alongside the specific darning techniques, Hikaru also includes some sample projects and photo galleries of various darning techniques on different fabrics to help you choose what's right for the task ahead of you. And, if that's not enough, the book also includes some terrific inspiration in cases where darning might become an embroidered enhancement.
