Darning is a traditional European technique for mending clothes, a technique for repairing insect holes and loose ends in clothing. For generations, mending has been done with plain thread and unobtrusive sewing. But darning guru Hikaru Noguchi has innovated the method and the tools to give you loads of inspiration to create your own look.

Consider this book by Hikaru Noguchi for inspiration and instruction.
