Mending & repairing with Renee Williams



On this episode we talk with Renee Williams, Clothing Repair Advocate & Mending Enthusiast, founder of That Perfect Hour.

We explore learning skills from those that might not be here much longer, how even just two generations ago people had access to less convenient products so had to know how to repair things, having a beginners mindset, not seeking for perfection yet actioning, the footprint that clothing has, sharing and community.

Renee talks about her upbringing in which her grandmother was a seamstress, how it is a superpower to know how to ‘bring back to life’ a piece of clothing one loves, volunteering for Koha apparel mending clothes for those in need, deepening your relationship with your clothes, working with ones hands, visible mending as a way of showing personality.
