Recently I blogged about sewing as a form of rebellion in my post Makes You Think. That post was in response to Peter Lappin's article on Burdastyle titled Sewing as a Protest.
In the same vein of thought one of my favorite blogs, Offbeat Home, has a post about Repair as Rebellion. This post by Cat Rocketship addresses our disposable culture, and how buying quality items, repairing broken items, or hiring someone to fix something instead of throwing it away is a form of rebellion against this mentality. It also gives you a list of things to have handy to make your own repair kit.
