Summary
The gentlest of the 'gentle' arts, stitching, in all its forms, is rapidly becoming more popular. Many people are learning to use sewing machines, but are forgetting the huge enjoyment and relaxation that can be found in hand stitching. In her latest book, leading craft author Jane Brocket offers 40 projects designed to encourage a renewed appreciation of the beauty of the stitch. The author's notes outline her inspiration for each project, along with her top tips on the best places to find fabrics, ribbon, buttons and anything else you can imagine. Jane's designs combine traditional stitching techniques with her own love of fabric and colour. From seasonal kantha quilts and fabric flower arrangements to projects half-crazy patchwork, busy daises and literary cross stitch, this book will be a real treat to explore. With an emphasis on Jane Brocket's 'gentle' approach to craft this book celebrates the simple act of sewing. Over 40 projects will teach you how to make simple yet stylish pieces for your home. Whatever you choose to make, from quilts and samplers to needlepoint pin cushions and stitched greeting cards, Jane's unique take on sewing will ensure that the creative process is as enjoyable as the satisfaction found in the finished project. With techniques as varied as Japaneses sashiko, quilting, traditional cross stitch and re-imagining the 'crinoline lady', there is something here for every keen stitcher
