Hey! I'm Renee
advocate & mending
It's my mission to help you keep your clothes looking fabulous
- by teaching basic mending skills
- providing support & ideas
- by planting a seed...
...that if I can mend clothes, what else can I mend or repair?
...that maybe there are other options than fast fashion and a constant cycle of consumerism.
These are powerful ideas that can help us change our relationship to the things that we own.
Renee is a creative with more than 10 years experience, based in Geelong, Australia. She teaches clothes mending skills both in person and online.
She also advocates for greater understanding of the impact of Fast Fashion on our environment.
She has learned how a mending practice can help us to connect with our belongings and to appreciate the resources, time and energy that go into creating our clothes.
It is this understanding that can help put the importance of mending into perspective. This is her mission.
What is Visible Mending?
It's simply mending that is not trying to hide. Visible Mending is simple to learn and doesn't require any special equipment. It also looks really cool - we can even make our garments look better than they did to begin with.
'There is no right or
wrong way to mend
if the item is mended,
you have done it the

Where can I start?
Learning basic mending skills is something most of us can do. A small patch or a new button can give new life to a garment and allow you to fall in love with it all over again.
