      S. R. Mallery's Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads, is a magnificent duvet of short stories held together thematically by the archetypical image of women's role as a sustainer of life through her sewing ability. The characters all come from different cultural and social backgrounds, but all share a common goal:to uphold justice in a cruel, uncaring world. In order to save her marriage, a newly wed woman must unstitch a quilt harbouring a curse that dates to the Salem Witch Trials. L [...]

      “Sewing can be Dangerous and other Small Threads” by S.R. Mallery is a patchwork of well-crafted short stories, all of which have great stories and characters at their centre: We meet a Jewish girl who is less respected by her father than she was by the Russians she fled from at the turn of the 20th century and we read about a century long curse that needs to be broken, about Jews hoping to escape Nazi Germany, hopeful surgeons, ex-slaves and history professors to name half of them.Mallery t [...]

      njkinnysblog/2015/07/bSewing Can be Dangerous and Other Small Threads by SR Mallery is the first book by the author that I read and instantly felt happy that I had picked it up to read!The cover at first looks a bit like a puzzle but when you look closely, you understand that it is a quilt! So intricate with so many its and bits of pictures showcased on it, my interest was peaked at once. Then when I read the blurb, I just knew I had to pick this book up to read. Add the unique title to this mix [...]

      S. R. Mallery's “Sewing Can Be Dangerous” is a collection of stories that all have a common thread (sorry): sewing, especially quilt making. Ms. Mallery ingeniously weaves this theme through a wide variety of settings and time periods, from a plantation in the old South to Medieval England, from early 20th century New York City to San Francisco's Summer of Love. The element of danger is ever present, but has nothing to do with something as simple as pricking fingers on needles. Most of the s [...]

      11 Great Short StoriesI loved all of these short stories. When I began to read the book, I was amazed by the variety of stories that took place in various locations, and at different historical times. I’d half expected some repetition in story lines and this was simply not the case. It was also curious, as well as clever, to link them through the topic of sewing. Ms Mallery also gives detailed descriptions of situations which drew me into each story with ease. If you read suspense and/or myste [...]

      Did you ever imagine that sewing could be life changing or life saving? Yes it can as S.R. Mallery shows us in an engaging collection of short stories spanning events from the 1400s to modern day. "Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads" indulges those who enjoy history and those who enjoy sewing and related arts. Mallery bit off a lot when she chose to delve into eleven vastly different historical eras, but she succeeds admirably in creating each of these times. I found it easy to see [...]

      This is exactly why I am so supportive of the self-publishing Indie community!Sarah Mallery’s collection of short stories is absolutely superb. Don’t be misled by the title. This is NOT a collection of tales about little old ladies sitting around drinking dandelion and burdock and darning socks. Far from it. The stories are so diverse that they include a murder aboard a cruise ship, escape from a slave plantation in the deep south of America, threats to kill Richard the Lionheart in the Midd [...]

      Warm and comforting like a handmade quiltA quilt is a bed covering made from fabric and batting joined together with lines of stitching. The more simple quilts are made from squares of different colored fabrics to form a decorative design while other more intricate ones are pieced together from tiny swatches of fabric such that they tell a tale or convey a family’s history within its intricate design. This would be the best way to describe Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads. Each [...]

      Reading Can Be Exciting!To start with, it is extremely difficult to describe something you really like and enjoy. Mallery's short stories are like jewels encrusted on a deeply cherished 'tapestry' of ingrained memories, implied symbolism, deep feelings and life-changing experiences.Her style of narration is so rich, all-embracing and enthralling that the reader would inevitably relive all the plots, immerse into the setting of each story, feel all the emotions of the characters and empathize wit [...]

      Sewing Can Be Dangerous by S.R. Mallery is a 2015 publication.This may be the most unique collection of short stories I have ever read. For the sake of time and space, I will only detail a few of the stories, but each tale has a connection through weaving or sewing, which is a subject I would never would have expected a group of stories be centered around, but after reading this anthology , I feel this was a clever way to connect all the individual tales, places, and events, with just a hint of [...]

      I really enjoyed this collection. S.R. Mallery's words paint images that transport the reader to another time, place and culture. You'll enjoy getting lost in each experience. Each tale gives a deeper understanding of history.Among my favorite's are Lettie's Tale, the story of a slave child viewed as less valuable since she is deaf and mute. Lettie becomes a master seamstress and is invaluable quilting messages and directions to help slaves escape. A very exciting story.Also, Murder She Sewed, a [...]

      I loved S. R. Mallery's first book, Unexpected Gifts, for its rich and varied historical eras used in the setting and theme of the novel.She continues that same talent in her collection of short stories, Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads. The thread that holds the stories together is a literal one as all the short stories employ some type of sewing or weaving of threads at the heart of the plots. The stories are set in important historical eras and are sometimes romantic, sometimes [...]

      I have always believed that it takes more efforts too write short stories as you have limited number of words to tell your complete story. In very few words you have to express all the thoughts and ideas you have in your mind. When I first saw this book, I would admit I was little confused about the title. I was wondering what all this book is going to be about. Then I read the first story and thought may be its about women who sew and make beautiful things with their talented hands. But as I co [...]

      Sewing Can Be Dangerous is a collection of short stories that incorporates action, mystery, and history. These topics also focus on social injustice such as drug trafficking, slavery, abuse, and prejudices. Each of these stories are connected through sewing. For not only does it involve threads, but also in some stories it connects the present to the past. For a person from the present is interested in an event from the past, and digs to find the truth of the person and the incident. I found the [...]

      Sewing Can be Dangerous and Other Small Threads is a collection of eleven short stories that are tied together by the theme of sewing. As with any short story collection, there were some stories that I enjoyed more than others; but, overall this is a strong collection. Each story is strongly character driven and many of the stories showcase women's strength, intelligence and motivation through history and throughout the world. Each character had a unique voice and took me to a different place an [...]

      At first glance, the title SEWING CAN BE DANGEROUS may seem innocently humorous, but when you look into what inspired it, you realize that the collection revolves around a serious issue. The author’s father told her all about the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911.  According to him, not only was that day horrific—over 140 young women’s lives were lost—but how important that event was because of the building codes that were changed after that.Riveted by the fate of those [...]

      Writing historical fiction from the heart The art of the short story requires an immediate connection with the reader so that time and space are not wasted. The author does this well in her very readable collection of eleven short stories. The first tale opened in the present, went smartly back to the sad days in Brooklyn, NY, and the tragic fire of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on March 25th 1911, when many low-paid garment workers died. We read, with colorful Jewish dialogue, why Sasha was t [...]

Sewing, quilting, weaving, embroidery, macrame, and hand-made Native American sacred dolls all play prominent roles in these stories.Just as with the author's novel, Unexpected Gifts, the prose is vibrant and the history well-researched. The stories cover such settings as England during the Crusades, the Salem witch trials and a curse that lingers to the present, a slav [...]

A very clever way to incorporate the theme into these stories that are very different. These are all historical fiction and include a story about the tragedy that was The Shirtwaist Factory where 145 women died in a devastating fire, drug trafficking, 1960's Haight Ashbury during the free love and drug culture of the Vietnam War, and a quilt that was cursed from [...]

This is all-around a good book. Some of the stories are better than others, but that is why they are a collection. Alone they are just another story, but together they weave a thread of understanding which will cover your thoug [...]
