* In ''Manga/TheRowsOfCherryTrees'', Yukiko Nakayama's mother's hobby is doing embroidery. It also comes off as a handy way to make quick cash, since she's skilled enough to make landscape pictures and sell them.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. The EstablishingCharacterMoment for the two Stark daughters -- [[PrincessClassic Sansa Stark]] is praised for her needlework, while [[TomboyPrincess Arya Stark]] runs out of the classroom to take part in archery. Sansa is also shown to be a proficient embroiderer, furrier, and leatherworker and is responsible for making her own clothes as well as items for other characters. Later Arya is given a sword [[ICallItVera which she names Needle]] in acknowledgement of her desire to be a BadassPrincess instead. Subverted in Season Four when Littlefinger points out to Sansa Stark that SheIsAllGrownUp and no longer TheIngenue... at the time Sansa is sewing what is later revealed to be her EvilCostumeSwitch.

** Princess Philomela of Athens wove a tapestry with pictures showing the TraumaCongaLine that had happened to her -- her older sister Procne's husband, King Thereus of Thracia, had raped her, cut out her tongue, ''and'' [[GirlInTheTower locked her away.]] She then gave the tapestry to a servant as a gift for the queen, which let Procne know about Philomela's BreakTheCutie process. [[KnightTemplarBigBrother I]][[ImaHumanitarian t]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge we]][[OffingTheoffspring nt]] FromBadToWorse [[BalefulPolymorph immediately]] [[DownerEnding afterwards.]]
** During the Roman kingdom, once the men bet about their wives, back at Rome, and return to find all them but Lucretia were partying; she was weaving with her maids. (This was the point at which Sextus Tarquinius resolved to rape her, which drove [[DefiledForever poor]] [[BreakTheCutie Lucretia]] [[SeppuKu to kill herself]]). [[ThisMeansWar The citizens of Rome did not take that kindly.]]

[[spoiler: She's even enough to take what remains of a massively torn PimpedOutDress and sew it into another without any trouble.]] Also, Nadja learns how to sew and even spends a whole episode making a red dress that she needs for her dancing skits; Anna allows her to use her own sewing machine and [[LampshadeHanging points out this trope]]:

* In the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' novel ''Take a Thief'', Skif is mocked by the other boy Trainees for being in the laundry/mending chore section at the Collegium - he'd learned to do it as a thief, as dirty and/or damaged clothing is easier to take without being noticed, and cleaning and mending it before taking it to the fence improves the resale value substantially for zero risk - until he points out that this means he's the only boy in a room full of girls, at which point he is suspected of secret genius.
