From Threads magazine, a list of 25 items everyone should have for mending/repairing garments.

Like you, I don't see the need for some of these items, mainly because I don't darn or felt! So I son't ave darning needles, darning egg or felting needles. Also, no bodkin (at least I don't think so... What IS a bodkin anyway?) nor do I have button twist thread (used to but can't find it now!). Lots of buttons but no hooks, eyes, snaps... And why clear buttons?

I have a crochet hook, but not one with interchangeable heads (never heard of such a thing).

Still an interesting list, though,,and a good place to start!

Like you, I don't darn. I didn't even know darning eggs still existed, although I remember my mother using one.

And I have never seen the crochet hook with interchangeable heads, either. I probably have one or more of all the sizes of crochet hooks there are, though!
