Review:

Get your geek on with 15 brainy projects perfect for all ages of guys and gals. From quirky quilts to funny wearables, this book will provide hours of delightful sewing entertainment. (Quiltmaker, January/February 2016)

If you love geek chic and puns, this is the book for you! Chock full of word play, Samarra's latest creation gives us a stitch in our side from a case of the giggles. From the literal Pencil Skirt to a Calculator quilt, you won't know which project to start first.The book also gives you a better sense of Samarra's silly side and see her oh-so-likeable/doesn't-take-herself-too-seriously personality on every page. You'll read about her design process, see her super-cute fabric designs, and don't miss the photographs of her finished projects, compete with hand drawn doodle. Sew Adorkable = so FUN! (Generation Q, November/December 2015)

This quirky book had us laughing out loud while reviewing it! From clothes (a pencil skirt with pencils appliquéd onto it, dinosaur pants for little boys) via home décor (a typewrite tissue box cover, Toothy the Tooth Fairy Cushion) to quilts (a 3D candy dot quilt, a Braille Alphabet quilt), there is something for everyone who like to be just a little bit different. The author lives in New York City but she's also half-Australian! (Down Under Quilts, Issue 174)

Any book that describes its crafts as redonkulous was destined to become a hit here at LP&Q headquarters, especially when some of those crafts are kooky quilt patterns! Sew Adorkable is full of brilliantly whimsical projects from textile designer Samarra Khaja, including a typewriter tissue box cover and a Braille alphabet quilt. The patterns are easy to follow and full of top tips, so there's no better time to get your geek chic on! (Love Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 33)
