Have you ever stepped into a pair of slacks, only to catch your foot and rip out half the hem? It is particularly annoying if you are traveling and don’t have extra clothes with you. So now what? It is a simple fix, but only if you know how.
This illustrated booklet will show you the basics for assembling and using a sewing kit for home and travel. It will show you how to make simple repairs such as sew on a button, mend a seam, and repair a hem. Keep it on your ereader so you’ll always have the directions when you need them. About 20 pages.
I live in a split entry house. From the front door, a short flight of stairs leads up to the main floor and another leads down to a hallway lined with overstuffed bookshelves. One Halloween, I opened the door to two trick-or-treaters, about nine years old. As I offered them candy, one of the boys asked in an awed voice, "Are you rich?" Laughing I asked him why he thought so, and he said, "All of those books!" Afterward, I looked at the paperback mysteries, the old encyclopedia we'd acquired one volume a week at a grocery store, the assorted hardbacks from bargain tables and secondhand stores, and I realized that he's right, I am rich.
