This is a fantastic group of short stories about sewing of different kinds that are actually part of a larger story. There are 11 of them and each is more interesting than the last. I liked reading each one. There are stories about quilts that ended up saving lives, there is a story about someone who is saved because she can sew. The stories are so well thought out that I was swept up in each of the stories,I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.
