Today is a wonderful day! My book The Sewists is now out there for you, dear reader to purchase and enjoy. It’s the kind of book you can have a little flip through when you need some inspiration. The type of read that makes you want to get sewing and share in the wonderful world of handmade. I am so proud of The Sewists and thankful to all the designer-makers who took part in the project. It was a big undertaking, but it was a totally worthwhile one.
One of my fondest memories was the time spent at Fringe, styling the projects for the photo shoots. I spent several joyous hours plotting the images and sourcing props and backdrops to show off the work of the designer-makers who had entrusted me with their beautifully crafted samples. Seeing Sam Walton’s photographs for the first time was a great feeling. We took so many snaps on the day, I thought I’d share some of them with you here, they may not have made the cut book-wise, but they are smashing all the same.
The Sewists is available from Laurence King, my splendid publisher. See if you can spot the book out in the wild and do let me know where you find it. I’m going to be book hunting in bricks and mortar shops- why not order a copy from your local independent bookshop?
Happy sewing folks!
