  Boys Who Sew 30 Mar 2004  
You may think that men who know one end of a needle and thread from another are a rare breed. But Boys Who Sew is an exhibition currently on at the Crafts Council Gallery in London which aims to challenge the view that working with textiles is something that only women do.

In fact, there's nothing new in men being a dab hand at needlework as our reporter Alex Lewis found out when she met up with three men who stitch for a living.
