About Payment and Shipping


 About shipping cost

This book introduces methods for “repairing” items to cherish and use them for a longer time. It revives spots that have mysteriously appeared, moth-eaten areas, or places accidentally torn, using techniques like darning, embroidery, and appliqué.

It also provides clear explanations about the basics of darning and embroidery.

In an era where fast fashion is popular and everything is easily purchasable, there are still favorite items that we’ve worn for a long time, associated with memories and comfort, not easily replaceable.
The items introduced include sweaters, cardigans, and other tops, denim, skirts, socks, gloves, scarves, bags, and more.
All of these are not major overhauls but are enjoyable as simple, one-point remakes.
