Yes, it’s happening! My next book Sewing Jeans: The complete step-by-step guide is finally available for pre-order. I’ve gotten so many requests for this (thank you!) which is super encouraging and just the kind of motivation I need as I’m putting the finishing touches on this 192 pages long book.
I wanted to create a sewing book I would have loved to have in my hands when I sewed my first pair of jeans almost 20 years ago. Detailed, with clear step-by-step instructions showing how to use professional techniques, but adapted to our home sewing equipment. And I think I have achieved that goal with this book 🙂
I was also lucky to connect with a professional who works in jeans manufacturing who was immensely helpful in my research process. As you might already have noticed, if you own my previous sewing books and read the tutorials on this blog, I’m very keen on meshing home sewing techniques with garment industry methods. I believe that this combo both provides stellar-looking garments, speeds up the assembly process and is also fun to learn, so it’s a triple win.
Benefits of a pre-order
For me, as a small, independent, sewing book publisher (I’m doing it all from the corner of my living room) it’s immensely helpful to have an estimate about many books I should order for my first print run since this is a scary investment.
Which is why a pre-order is important. And that’s also the reason why the book will be out later this fall since the production lead time is long. I will send the books to the printer in mid-August, but then it takes a few months to get the books in the places where they need to be.
For you, if you pre-order the print book through Amazon (Amazon affiliate link) you’ll get the lowest price guarantee, which means that Amazon will likely switch the pricing around a bit, but you will always get the lowest price listed between the time you placed your order and the end of the day of the release date.
Note: Due to circumstances beyond my control, you will only be able to pre-order from Amazon UK and US. I might be able to expand to other vendors later on though, I’m still looking into it.
And if you chose the ebook you will get a nice discount price of only $17.90 if you place an order before the release date.

Thank you so much for all the support and encouragement I’ve gotten from you during this process, it means the world to me <3
