About Sew It Up

Sew It Up, a modern manual of practical and decorative sewing techniques is out now.

The book covers everything you need to start sewing, from threading a needle, setting up a sewing space and choosing fabric to how to use commercial dress patterns. For those with more experience there are over 150 decorative and practical techniques to incorporate into your repertoire, including 20 masterclasses which cover useful and fascinating techniques such as trapunto quilting and couture hemming. It also includes 20 original project designs including handbags, clothes, accessories and soft furnishings.
My aim when writing this book was to create the sewing book I wanted to read; one that is well-illustrated so the techniques are really clear and has inspiring and contemporary projects for things I would want to make.
I had a great time making, writing and researching the material for this book, which I hope will inspire both new and experienced fabric-lovers to make and create and enjoy.
