As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another. But when Natalie Chanin and her Alabama Chanin and The School of Making teams began to look at needlework closely, they realized all stitches are based on geometric grid systems—and by using grids as guides, they could make learning stitches, even seemingly elaborate ones, as easy as child’s play. In The Geometry of Hand-Sewing Chanin presents their breakthrough method, featuring illustrated instructions (for both right- and left-handed stitchers) for more than 100 stitches—from the most basic straight and chain to the more fanciful feather and herringbone; photos of both right and wrong sides; and guidelines for modifying stitches to increase one’s repertoire further. To simplify learning, the book also offers downloads for two stitching cards with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based. These printable cards can be used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric.

Flowers are the universally popular motif for embroidery, whether for small decorative embellishments for personal use on clothes and household linen or for large embroidered flower pictures. The source of this inspiration is open to any embroiderer who can observe the flowers in their natural state in the garden or on a country walk. In this wonderful reference book, Janet Haigh provides inspirational designs and techniques for a wide range of popular flowers, in crewel work, applique and counted thread work. Each flower is depicted in the manner that most suits its natural form and shape, and occasionally in more than one technique. Copyable motifs and comprehensive how-to-work instructions are given for each flower depicted, so it's easy to recreate exactly what you see or reinterpret it in different colours, and on a larger or smaller scale. In addition to an exquisite gallery of designs for flowers, Janet provides easy-to-follow instructions for a range of simple embroidery techniques, both hand and machine, from the first principles of transferring the design onto the embroidery ground to working with ribbons, beads, applique, raised work and counted threads. A comprehensive, step-by-step stitch glossary provides the detailed information for each embroidery stitch used in the book.
