Make It Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Lovebridges the gap between life in a disposable culture and the basic skills needed to save money and live more sustainably. This book teaches you how to extend the lives of the things you love by repairing clothing, preserving home-grown food, and even repairing your kitchen sink. Raleigh Briggs takes her longtime commitment to community building through the DIY movement and shares her valuable experience with the reader through a conversational tone in her hand drawn and illustrated guide.

"Midwest Book Review" "Raleigh's tone throughout is as if she is sharing her experience with a peer: never assuming you aren't ready to roll your sleeves up and try it right then and there with no hesitation...the basic tone is inclusive and appealing. It has the feel of a letter; the painstaking handwriting and sweet illustrations drew me in...Appropriate for people who maybe haven't been exposed to DIY before." "Maximum Rocknroll" "show more
