Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field began Merchant & Mills in 2010 with the
intention of bringing style and purpose to the overlooked world of sewing.
Merchant & Mills continues to grow steadily, evolving and developing as experience and ideas demand. Carolyn and Roderick now travel the world in search of unique and beautiful fabrics, finding aesthetic and practical inspiration along the way. Merchant & Mills products are stocked in the world’s most respected outlets and the company has successfully collaborated with London’s V&A Museum and Alexander McQueen.
Their ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, as they enable and inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making. To this end, Merchant and Mills has published three instructive, illustrated books.
Carolyn Denham has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London. Roderick Field is a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery.
This Sewing Book is one of the 3 instructive and illustrative books that encompasses their skills and experiences in bringing the world of sewing in its old world glory to those who share their passion.
In 176 beautiful and informative pages.
Part I introduces tools, techniques, our philosophy and working methods so you're completely prepared for the fifteen fabulous projects in part 2. The book guides you through the construction of an apron, bags, soft furnishings and even things to wear. Each task builds on the skills gained in the previous one and as if that were not enough they even throw in a couple of patterns for you to scale up and get cutting. Read, learn and make.
