It’s publication week for The Little Book of Sewing! Have you been joining in the Instagram fun #thelittlebookofsewing? I’ve seen so many great and inspiring stories, including how this book inspired Kathy of Sew Dainty to launch her own jewellery business. Check out those acrylic scissors – swoon!
Of course, it takes more than one person to write a book. From my editor, Ellen, to Sam who designed the cover, to the production person who picked out those gorgeous yellow endpapers to … you, dear readers!
The moment I began the writing journey, I knew that I wanted to include my blog readers. I’ve always said that half the sewing wisdom at Did You Make That comes from the friends who leave comments. And I was determined that wisdom would find its way into this book!
Each chapter has a different emotional theme, from kindness to self image, sexuality to aspiration. And each chapter features quotes…
But I didn’t only want to feature quotes from famous people. I wanted to feature quotes from … YOU! And with permission, that’s exactly what I did. Here are a selection, taken from the book:
It was so much fun selecting quotes and then reaching out to readers! Everyone had a story to share behind their quote and I felt as though we were really writing this book together. Thank you to all the people who contributed.
It’s the book launch in a few days, which means I really should crack on with some sewing. Shall I see you there? We need to celebrate together, too!
