Carolyn Denham & Roderick Field, who are the duo behind Merchant & Mills, are also behind this book, where they give their views on the art of sewing and to satisfaction of creating something.
The book is divided in two. Part one is about tools and techniques and why and how you sew. Part two takes deals with the more practical part, namely sewing in itself, where they take you through 15 sewing projects complete with illustrations and diagrams. Each sewing project builds on techniques and skills from the previous, so everyone can follow the guidelines, whether you are a beginner or more advanced.
The book is definitely of value regardless of your own approach to sewing. Besides the fact that the content is thorough and useful at all levels, the book itself is beautiful and will adorn any sewing room.
