Overview

With a design aesthetic to inspire any craft lover, London Stitch and Knit: A Craft Lover’s Guide to London’s Fabric, Knitting and Haberdashery Shops seamlessly documents the city’s best to provide a comprehensive guide that encompasses the handmade and the vintage.

Freelance writer and photographer Leigh Metcalf discovers the hidden gems in London’s ever-growing craft community, promoting independent shops as well as craftspeople and their work. Ever since she arrived in London from the US, Metcalf has made it her mission to discover the best places for haberdashery supplies. Drawing on her experience from the last five years, she combines well-informed narrative, illustrations and a beautiful, layered design, to discover the history and operations of approximately 50 shops—divided by London territories.

Metcalf graduated from Georgia State University with a BA in English Literature. Her freelance career has seen articles published for magazines such as Mollie Makes and Pretty Nostalgic. London Stitch and Knit is born of Metcalf’s successful blog Found, Now Home, described by Lauren Smith, Creative Director of Pop-Up Magazine as “one of only a handful of blogs that I even bother reading anymore”.
