Redwork is experiencing a real revival in the U.S. today. There are several good books available now dealing with redwork embroidery quilting, but none quite like 'Presidential Redwork: A Stitch In Time.' The author approaches the subject from a new perspective and includes the whole family in the experience. The book features all 42 U.S. presidents in easy to embroider redwork patterns, updating a form of redwork quilting popular at the turn of the century. Also included are bonus patriotic patterns such as various American eagles and U.S. landmarks. While the book isn't being used for quilting, the family can read the interesting biographies on each president, many revealing little known facts about our nation's leaders. Alternatives to embroidery are explored to include children in this fun and historical past-time.
