The Little Book Of Sewing – First Glimpse


Hello, my friends! I have written a book, it’s super cute, it’s publishing on 4 April and it’s available to pre order here!

Pre orders are really important to a book’s launch and they’re loved by Amazon, publishers and humble authors alike. It helps the industry judge appetite for the book – and I’m hoping there’s plenty of appetite for this!

The Little Book Of Sewing is quite literally a little book, a pocket-sized hardback that is perfect for keeping next to the sewing machine or by your bedside. The book takes readers through the range of emotions associated with sewing. There are chapters on self-love, body image, mental health, passion, kindness… Plus, there are a range of other fun details:

  • sewing tips
  • inspiring quotes
  • black and white illustrations
  • words of wisdom

Whether you’re a beginner, or an experienced Sewist, this is the book for you – or so I hope!

  9. I’m going to add another of those, “looking forward to reading this” comments. And noting that my bedside pile has already outstripped Marie Kondo’s recommendation but, hey, you know. Priorities. Right?! Thank you 🙂

    Good luck with this. I find it very exciting when I get royalties from mine even several years after publishing my first book. It takes a lot of effort to get a book finished. I have been working on my third book for 3 years now so I know just how much time goes into doing this. Wishing you all the best with the launch.

  11. Mary says:
