Book Talk – Hand Sewing Clothing: A Guide


Join us in celebrating the power and relevance of hand sewing clothing. At this free, virtual book talk, TATTER founder Jordana Munk Martin will speak with Louisa Owen Sonstroem, author of the newly released book, “Hand Sewing Clothing: A Guide.” In an ever-faster world, there is nonetheless a growing movement toward hand sewing. Louisa will discuss hand sewing’s importance today, read several passages from her book, and share a bit about the process of independently publishing a craft book. She will also show several hand-sewn clothing projects she has made.

“Hand Sewing Clothing: A Guide” was published in January 2021. Its 200 pages include step-by-step skill instructions, essays, results of time studies, stories, and more. It contains over 330 hand-drawn illustrations, and each volume is hand-bound.

“For those seeking a slower, gentler way to make clothes, this book will serve as a guide to sewing clothing by hand — without use of a sewing machine. Hand sewing clothing can be a radical act of slow fashion. Reclaim the democratic, accessible, ancient power of sewing that needs no machine.”
