For generations, girls known as spinsters have been called by Arras' Manipulation Services to work the looms and control what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die. Gifted with the unusual ability to weave time with matter, sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys is exactly what the guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But Adelice isn't interested. Because once you become a Spinster, there's no turning back.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The halls of Coventry are dark and twisted places readers will want to visit.” New York Times
“Crewel is a book about romance, knowing who to trust, and destiny.” Seventeen.com
“Captivating and intense, Albin’s intricate debut has the right balance of mystery, romance, and drama.” Publishers Weekly
“Debut author Albin spins an intriguing dystopian world that mirrors ours: resources are limited, men have most of the power, and women do the work that holds the world together…Adelice has a delightfully snarky mouth, and she takes a leap at the end of the book that will inspire readers to follow her into the next installment.” Booklist
