Welcome!

Why do we long for beauty? The Buddhists would reply that the world of beauty is our home and we are born with a love for home. To long for beauty, therefore, is the same as to long for home.

- Soetsu Yanagi

Welcome to the Mending as Metaphor site, which I hope grows to be a valuable resource for connection and inspiration as well as interaction.

I am interested in who is out there using mending as an art form, a textile practice or a practical way to enhance and keep our clothing and textiles in circulation and out of the landfills.
