When was the last time you picked up a needle and thread to mend a tear in a sweater or jeans? It’s probably been quite a while. These days we either wear the outfit with the tear it in or tuck it away in a drawer until it’s time to give it away to Good Will or something. People rejoiced all over the world when jeans with tears in them were popular. They were able to double their wardrobe which consisted of dozens of torn jeans that were now in fashion. We don’t mend or sew like our grandmothers used to do. We just go out and buy another blouse or pair of pants. Times have sure changed.
