Product Details

Praise

“Sonya Philip was one of my first sewing teachers, and The Act of Sewing encapsulates everything I love about Sonya’s teaching style: it’s gracious, accessible, encouraging, and forgiving. In the book’s essays and sewing instructions, Sonya goes far beyond teaching the technical aspects of sewing. Her thorough, thoughtful guide encourages readers to think about sewing as more than the mere act of creating a garment but as a way to define and assert our style, and to love our bodies.”—Jen Hewett, author of Print, Pattern, Sew

“Keep this book close at hand. Dog-ear the pages. Allow Sonya and her clear, concise instructions to guide you through making a wardrobe that reflects who you are and teaches you the skills to design and sew clothing that is uniquely yours.”—Kristine Vejar, owner of A Verb for Keeping Warm and author of The Modern Natural Dyer and Journeys in Natural Dyeing
 
“What a lovely book! The Act of Sewing is very encouraging, versatile, and packed with sewing techniques.”—Sanae Ishida, author of Animal Friends to Sew
