Through the Eye of a Needle

The True Story of a Man Who Went Searching for Meaning— and Ended Up Making His Y-fronts

by John-Paul Flintoff


"It seems, and I'm grinding my jaws as I type this, that his time has come."

Harriet Green, (the author's wife) quoted in The Observer

"Does this mean that you've been knitting and crocheting awesome things for your daughter? Cool!"

Betsy Greer, author of Knitting for Good

"I think it is chic to have darned your own clothing."

India Knight, (speaking to the author)

"I don't really understand what you are doing, but I wish you every success."

Vivienne Westwood

"Combines the cheerful idealism of Tom Hodgkinson with the well-meaning cluelessness of Danny Wallace, and a commitment to the DIY ethic not seen since William Morris started stringing his first loom."

Mark Bailey
