A stitch in time.
” A Stitch in Time Saves Nine”
- It means that if you have a rip in your clothes you will only have to stitch once unless you wait until it gets bigger, then you will have to stitch 9 more times
- Sewing up of a small hole or tear in a piece of material, saves the need for more stitching at a later date when the hole has become larger
- Also seen as paying close attention to the work at hand will save working harder later on
