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.

"From a debut author, The Sewing Machine follows the tale of a Singer Sewing machine from its “birth” on the production line in the early 1900s. “An extraordinarily accomplished and beautiful debut novel woven with historical detail.” RACHAEL LUCAS, author of Coming Up Roses"
