You know the story: It’s raining, which is bad enough, but on top of that, some pieces of your umbrella are helplessly flapping about in the wind, as they’ve come unmoored from their spokes. Don’t fret, and don’t throw it away! We’re about to show you how to give your umbrella a new lease on life.

Technique Materials

Umbrella with unmoored tips, heavy-duty thread, needle

    To the Team, Thank you for a readable tutorial. Coming from Chicago, I’ve seen inside-out umbrellas many times. Cordially, Nehmah

    Very nice tutorial, thanks. I only wish I could have repaired my umbrellas so far, but every time mine was broken, it was something mechanical.

    Nice tutorial, but living in a quite windy city, broken spokes are usually my problem…

    Thank you. I have repaired my umbrellas for years. You have another step [turning and hemming area for strength] which will make my repairs more sucessful and longer lasting.

    You did a great job of making a clear tutorial. I have known this but never thought about others needing to know how. Good job of seeing a need and meeting it with style. :o)

    This is a VERY COOL tutorial! I can’t believe it never occurred to me to repair an umbrella when the little things pop off the little things… good one!

      LOL, EmilyKate, you are great. I would have described the situation/repair in a similar fashion. Only my bumbershoot has doodads and thingys. Due, no doubt, to different makers. Nehmah
