August/September 2014 Stitch
Embroidery has long been a way of celebrating and commemorating special events and people. From samplers wishing newlyweds good luck, to crazy quilts made from a toddler’s beloved outgrown clothes, the human drive to preserve memories through stitched textiles is a venerable tradition, which shows no sign of abating.

Brian Haggard’s book delivers exactly what it promises, detailing precisely how to 'capture your treasured moments with creative embroidery.'

A clever blend of inspirational pictures of finished items is combined with a generous array of trace-off designs including two beautiful alphabets, enabling you to produce truly personalized items with ease.

The gallery section is spectacular in scope and style. My particular favourite is an elegant wing chair immaculately upholstered in cream linen. The central vertical panel makes a perfect backdrop for photographs of the author’s grandmothers. Beautifully rendered in sepia, their images are accompanied by embroidered names, dates, sentimental items and other memorabilia. This work of art offers stitchers a wonderful way of incorporating this sort of embroidery into a room which really can’t absorb another cushion, quilt or picture!
