Product description


An awe-inspiring tome, this features gorgeously tactile full colour images. A joy to read, Hand Stitch will enthral students, embroiderers, crafters and designers alike, with conversations about stitches, biographies of well known stitchers, the impact of stitching and historical facts. Each chapter is written by a different practitioner, giving it a range of individual perspectives. The book is thoughtful, absorbing and has a strong sense of community spirit, much like the craft it is championing. * Inside Crochet *
