Stitching, in all its forms, is rapidly becoming more popular. Many people are learning to use sewing machines, but are forgetting the huge enjoyment that can be found in hand stitching. With an emphasis on Jane Brocket's 'gentle' approach to craft, this book celebrates the simple act of sewing, reducing the art to its most basic form. 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 greetings cards, Jane's unique take on sewing will ensure that the creative process is as enjoyable as seeing the finished object. The author's notes and photographs 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. With techniques as varied as Japanese Sashiko, American-style quilting, traditional cross stitch and re-imagining the Victorian 'crinoline lady', there is something here for every keen stitcher.
