Welcome to the Pocket Book for the 31st January. 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 and put it together with a little bit of the Stitch Society for you to read at your leisure.

This Pocket Book is quite short and focuses on things to see and do as the month draws to a close. The snowdrops are just peeking out of the soil letting us know that Spring is on it’s way, filling us with hope for the coming months.

Alabama Chanin Pocket Book 31st January


We have become huge fans of the American pattern and sewing website Alabama Chanin whose patterns are unusual designs that can be individualised with various techniques explained on their website. If you like to try something new to sew, they are well worth investigating.
