Summary

“A charming introduction to the thrill of creating something with fabric and thread . . . Great for aspiring sewists of all ages!” (Gretchen Hirsch, author of Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing)   Sewing is a skill that’s both fun and functional, and there’s no better way to get started than with jolly Miss Patch! She learns how to thread a needle, cut patterns, and sew a fine seam by hand. With the help of Miss Patch, and the book’s many diagrams and amusing drawings, beginning sewists can learn to make a pillow, a bag, a patchwork quilt, an apron, and even simple clothes. Originally published in 1969, this is a timeless introduction to the pleasures of sewing.   “Overall, this book was nicely put together and included an introduction to sewing which was perfect for young girls and boys . . . It was creative and fun to look through.” —Sweetly Made (Just for You)

    In one minute, you can blink your eyes twenty times, hug your dog, plant seeds, say good-bye, watch the rain, or even save a life. So much can occur in this sliver of time—one minute can feel like a singular experience. This poignant picture book is at once an introduction to time for young readers, an ode to living each moment with purpose, and a thoughtful exploration of how children experience one minute (may it seem short or long) playfully, profoundly, and with a boundless sense of possibility.
