As I have reached 50 followers I think it's time for another giveaway!

This time it's a book but not just any book but the most comprehensive book you can find on Sewing...

If you are quite left-handed when it comes to sewing (like I am) The Sewing Book by Alison Smith will be just the right thing for you!
The book gives you not only guidelines and step-by-step instructions on various sewing techniques, it also offers an overview on sewing equipment, fabrics, patterns and ideas for project such as sewing a drawstring bag, making a book cover, cushions, aprons, hessian bags, roman blinds, you name it. It even includes a directory of fashion and soft furnishings...

Alison Smith is a trained Arts and Fashion Textile Teacher and owns her own shop called Fabulous Fabric. She has also set up her own sewing school, the Alison Victoria School of Sewing in Leicestershire, which is in fact the largest independent sewing school in England.
