This is a glorious little book to have if you are a keen sewer, or want to be. We adore Merchant & Mills, Carolyn Denham and Rodrick Field’s stylish haberdashery company, with its irresistible store based in Rye. They have already written one serious book on sewing, now the pair have produced a linen bound handbook to keep close to you through your sewing adventures, be they small or grand. It has clear diagrams and no nonsense directions that help guide you to success. It is a comforting size – sort of A5-ish -that fits neatly into your hand or sits comfortingly beside your sewing to be your ‘ever-ready tutor’ as the book itself states.
A lovely present for a new sewer and a delicious treat for the experienced. Buy here. Elementary Sewing Skills from Merchant & Mills
