We have all heard of spring cleaning? ………we though March might be a good time to think about spring cleaning our closets & sewing rooms. We are bound to find clothing and household linens which need a little TLC. This book is just the ticket to help with that: creative patching, darning & stitching.

I thought this page was just luscious! It heads up the chapter on Seam fixes.

Do have a look at the link to the book. Kristin has a website dedicated to this aspect of sewing. Loads of information plus you get to look inside the book: 223 pages, hard cover, lovely pic’s and great easy to follow instructions. Topics range from a bit of the history of mending & sewing to what you need in a mending kit to surface fixes to fixing hems & waist lines, zipper repairs; and much more.

Our thanks, once again, to Storey Publishing for the generous donation of this book.

SO, DO ENTER BEFORE IT SLIPS YOUR MIND……remember you have no chance of winning if you don’t enter! Good luck for the draw at end of March.
