About the Author
After an agonising decision on whether to work in a costume shop or study journalism, life-long crafter Katie Allen went for the latter and has spent most of the last seven years writing, editing, or faffing about with websites. She is now the web editor of www.thebookseller.com and www.welovethisbook.com. But she never lost the love of making things and has managed to combine the two - her first job was on Knitting magazine, and she is a regular contributor to Mollie Makes, while from 2008-2011 she ran feminist website and magazine Fat Quarter, which featured many other creative ladies. She still fits in stitching, knitting, cutting and gluing in any spare moments, and spends far too much money on "necessary" buttons and yarn. She blogs at www.ladyglitters.blogspot.com and her Twitter is @KatieFQ

Despite this I did like some of the project ideas (hence three stars) but I felt I got nothing extra on most of these projects than if I had seen a picture of it on Pintrest and i am glad i only borrowed it!
Wish I'd got it out at the library first.
This book covers everything that you would ever want to make, from great gift ideas that you cannot find in the shops (and which you can tailor to your friend's personal taste), to those essential items for the house such as soft furnishings and kitchen items.Read more ›

I massively recommend this book. Speaking as someone who used to have trouble even threading a needle, Just sew stories is practical, totally non patronising and very innovative. Read morePublished on 15 Oct. 2012 by Ms. B. G. Rogers
