I am anxiously seeking and address/web site that offers instruction in reweaving and/or invisible mending. If anyone is aware of such a contact, please let me know. Thanks.

    Hi I dont know of any source for instruction on reweaving, but I recently repaired the slashed
    shoulder of a loosely woven tweed jacket, by first
    using a fusible interfacing under the torn place,oh so carefully steamed it in place. The jacket is lined,so the interfacing patch won't show. Then I pulled yarns from the inside waistband of the jacket and mimicked the weave as best I could. This was a lengthy process, but I feel the results were excellent for a first try. As luck would have it,
    my hair comes down to the patched area. I have asked
    a few people to look at it and they cant find the repair with a casual glance. Of course, with a loose weave like I worked with, the repair was fairly easy.
    A fine suiting would require magnification and a bit more patience.
