Sample text from A Stitch in Time – repairing broken items
“Oh no,” wails Shyam.
The seams of his favourite shirt have come apart.
“I can’t wear this shirt anymore, Thatha!
“Of course you can, silly,” his grandfather says.
“We can repair it!”
Thatha takes a needle and a spool of blue thread.
He shows Shyam how to stitch
the seams together.
