Clothing is normally quite easy to repair and it only requires a few basic supplies to keep your clothing in functional and working order.
An average clothing repair done quickly after damage should take less than five minutes and extend the life of the garment by several months or more. For more information about garment repair, you can visit https://apparelgroup.net/sewing/.

Something literally worn out will likely not be worth repairing, so only repair items where the damage is in otherwise sound fabric.
- Sewing Thread: The most essential item for repairing any fabric is a good quality sewing thread. Be sure to get the thread that is suitable for sewing by hand. I prefer cotton yarn. For most repair needs, if you have a thread in navy blue, black, white, gray, and beige on hand, you will be set.
- Unwaxed Dental Floss: At a homestead, you may need to repair jeans. For patching jeans, the real strongest and best is to use "thread" faux dental floss. Patch stitch will outperform jeans. Use only on Homestead jeans, as the stitching will be visible.
- Sewing Needles: The next most important item in your sewing needle. While there are a large number of different types and styles of needles, picking up the mixed case works well. At least make sure that you have to short coils as they are the most versatile type of sewing needle for clothing repair.
