Bringing old skills to modern life,
This review is from: The Stitch Bible: A comprehensive guide to 225 embroidery stitches and techniques (Paperback)
Different people find different things to help occupy their time but whilst some like to paint and others like to read, there are some who love the art of sewing and embroidery which this title by Kate Haxell brings to the fore with a whole host of beautiful projects that require various skills as well as stitch types to create.
It's quite addictive to read and whilst I'm personally more a darn and make do type of guy I do have a relative that loves to create special projects for friends and family that she designs herself. Add to this a whole host of idea's as well as skills that she can develop to suit her own purpose, beautifully illustrated stitch patterns alongside easy to follow guide and all in this is a great book to help encourage a skill that feels like it's a dying art. A great book and could be an ideal Grand/mother/daughter set of projects to help pass the skills and love on to a new generation.
