It was through Toast that I found Celia Pym’s work. Pym, a London based textile artist, had mended a Toast customer’s beloved Ochre woolen socks with a shade of Pepto pink—the result was an absolutely gorgeous sock. Pym has a masters degree in textiles and sees mending as more of an art than an eco friendly ritual. Mending takes time, it takes time to get the stitches right. So in her eyes, it’s not practical to commit to mending each and every piece in your closet. Rather, she sees that people who come to her mending workshops bring their favorite pieces, the ones they love to tell stories about. Mending is just adding a new layer of storytelling to the piece, like layers of sediment that accumulate on a rock face.
Pym got interested in mending when a great uncle of hers died and she inherited a old white sweater which was worn in the forearms because he had drawn every day, leaning forward on a board. “I was struck by this idea that I could see the way the body moved in the sweater. Where the damage was, was a sense of how he had moved, a kind of echo of his body.” The forearms had already been heavily repaired by his sister. Those mends struck Pym as tender, and nearly brought her to tears. She found a darning instruction in a book from 1886 in her school library and got to work mending those holes in a contrasting color, not because of any visible mending she had seen, just out of aesthetics and practicality. “My instinct then was to just show what my work looked like versus her work. It’s also easier to mend with a contrasting color.” Toast’s repair specialist, Emily Settle, says that signature contrasting color trick inspired her to mend a customer’s navy sweater with burnt orange wool. The customer declared the sweater “the talk of Shropshire.”
Pym runs small classes of a dozen or so students on how to mend, and she encourages them to find their own style. She likens it to handwriting—some people have wild and curly scrawl, others have neat, tiny script. Mending is personal, it’s about caring for something when it’s not shiny and new. But still, it can be daunting to poke a needle into your favorite sweater when you’re not particularly crafty. The three experts I spoke to recommended starting with a needle (darning needles for woolen projects), thread (embroidery floss works well for denim and cotton, and wool for knitwear). If you’re mending a heel in a sock, or something like that, you can use any ball shaped object to hold the shape, from a wooden darning mushroom to a lemon or lime. From there, it’s all basic stitching and weaving techniques. Settle says, “Even if you’re a beginner, having not done any kind of needlework before, following a few basic techniques (the running stitch to start), you will soon find that you can advance to more complex techniques or simply spend joyful hours mending and bringing life back to beloved items.” Pym also advises hand washing mended garments, as stitches may shrink. To make it a visible mending project, choose a contrasting color. (But choose wisely. I started by mending a hole in a white sock with red thread and it looks like a bloody blister now!).
