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 her arrival in London from the US, Metcalf has made it her mission to discover the best places for haberdashery supplies. Drawing on five years of experience in the city, she combines well-informed narrative with illustrations and a beautiful layered design. London Stitch and Knit reveals the history and operations of approximately 50 shops in different zones of London.

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".
