Hooray! My second book, Stitch Savvy, is out in the world and available. It was two years in the making, and quite honestly, a ton of work–but I think it’s just beautiful, and couldn’t be more grateful to my publishing and editorial team at F+W for making it such a joy to hold!
I’ve asked some of my very favorite people to help me introduce the book to you over the next two weeks, and I am so flattered and pleased that they’ve agreed–so over the coming days, I’ll be showing photos of some of the projects from the book, and then leading you over to their sites to see more from the inside, hear their impressions, and get excited about taking your sewing to the next level!
Stitch Savvy is written as a kind of sequel to Stitch by Stitch, and is geared to the advanced-beginner-to-intermediate sewing level. I wrote Stitch by Stitch because I really wanted a go-to book for folks who were very first learning to sew, something that started at the very beginning and worked in a logical sequence from there. I love the book, and have been overwhelmed by how many people have really enjoyed using it, and even how many shops have designed beginning sewing classes using the projects I designed! Stitch Savvy will hopefully pick up where Stitch by Stitch left off, and is designed to allow each reader to choose their own sequence of projects as they work through the book. I’ll let the folks on the blog tour tell you more about that, but I’m really excited about the format of the book and the projects in it–I hope you love them!
For a sneak peek of the insides of the book and a little more about it while you wait for the blog tour to get rolling, check out this lovely mention on Sew, Mama, Sew from the holiday season.
