Welcome to the Pocket Book for the 13th March. Each week in the Pocket Book, we gather together articles from newsletters and books that we read, introduce makers that we adore, seasonal recipes we have tried and projects to do. We put it all together with a little bit of the Stitch Society for you to read at your leisure.

It’s been a very strange week. Normal life seems to be on hold at the moment, to be resumed at a later date. We hope you are staying well and taking all the necessary precautions such as  vitally important hand washing.

The Pocket Book this week is quite a short one with ideas to keep you busy is you do have to self isolate.
