Jan Messent qualified as a teacher in the mid-50s and, after teaching Art, History and English, became deeply involved with embroidery as an art form. As a member of the Embroiderers' Guild, she taught embroidery design to its members, wrote and illustrated design books, and lectured worldwide. Her last embroidery book was about the Bayeux Tapestry. She became interested in the experimental use of knitting and crochet and hoped, by her books on the subject, to open up new dimensions in the creative use of yarn. Now, having retired from lecturing, Jan writes historical fiction full-time, embroidering as a side-line, reading, painting, and listening to good music.
This is a new edition of the much loved book published in 1987 under the title 'Knit the Christmas Story'. It contains all the characters and animals familiar in the nativity. There is even an activity for young children. Instructions are easy to follow and once knitted, this could be passed from generation to generation. Uses small snippets of yarn. Good diagrams and photos are included in this colourful book.-yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts
