Debbie Shore's Sewing Journal

by Debbie Shore

Best-selling Search Press author Debbie Shore brings you all your essential sewing planning in one fabulous journal.

Highly commended in the 'Best Journaling Book' category at the Creative Book Awards, 2024.

Designed to be personalized, cherished and referred to for years to come, this gorgeous journal contains both essential, practical sewing information along with fill-in journal pages, designed to motivate, organize and invigorate your sewing journey.

Dotted throughout is essential practical guidance from Debbie, along with quick-reference conversion charts, personal insights, key know-how on subjects such as quilting and dressmaking, and top tips for effective project planning. Alongside this are the pages designed just for you. Keep all your measurements and project planning notes in one place; create wish lists, notes, doodles and sketches; and keep tabs on what's in your stash. The carefully considered project pages allow you to plan out 20 of your own sewing adventures, with space to write notes and fix in fabric swatches, and there are 12 monthly planners to organize your sewing year.

The handy compact size is perfect to slot into your sewing bag or take out when you're shopping for fabrics and project essentials. Free replacement planners can be printed from Bookmarked Hub.

Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned sewist, take Debbie's lead and be inspired to fill your journal with your own creative ideas that you can use, keep and cherish.
