“THERE’S GOING TO BE A STRIKE!”


It is 1911, and Jean is about to join the mass strike at the Singer factory. For her, nothing will be the same again.


Decades later, in Edinburgh, Connie sews coded moments of her life into a notebook, as her mother did before her.


More than 100 years after his grandmother’s sewing machine was made, Fred discovers a treasure trove of documents.  His family history is laid out before him in a patchwork of unfamiliar handwriting and colourful seams. 


He starts to unpick the secrets of four generations, one stitch at a time.

The title is perfect; because it really is about the machine and it’s magic

This book made me cry and stop and smile most importantly sign up to a book club, I had forgotten how much I loved reading and want to share my thoughts with more like minded people.

A fabulous generational tale that is absorbing to the last page, with a picture of 20th century life on the way through.
