Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Signature Styles: 20 Stitchers Craft Their Look is a combination: craft and style book, and a biography book. Author Jenny Doh has profiled some of the top women who take their craft to the next level, and each is successful in their own right. From sewing mavens to knitting gurus, this book touches on many popular forms of crafting and the women who make them popular…Not only do we read about the women and see them working in their studios or homes through the many color pictures, but each shares what their signature craft is and how to do it. Step-by-step projects include purses and bags, baby pants, belts, appliqué t-shirt and skirt, and sewn accessories such as bracelets, headbands and a necklace made out of fabric and felt. Each project is simple enough for beginners to accomplish but also easily customizable for advanced sewers…Jenny Doh does a great job detailing the women and their work. And for those needing a little inspiration or even motivation to get their craft projects done, reading how these women found success doing just that will give anyone reading it just what they need.” —Suite 101
 
“Not only do you get to peek inside the colorful and eclectic closets of some of the biggest bloggers out there like Elsie Flannigan, but you also get tips and step by step instructions from some of the hottest wearable artists like Bonzie, Meg Allen Cole, and Amy Tangerine. View their stashes, get a glimpse of their sewing space, and gain exclusive insight into the tastes of these inspiring women...Jenny Doh's point of view is polished, vibrant, and chic. This book is sure to excite fashionistas and crafters alike. Just like that trusty black dress, you'll want this book to be a staple in your crafting collection and library.” —Altered Couture

    Fun profiles and projects!

    Author Jenny Doh has developed her own personal style, but is continually intrigued by others who are working at their own look. Jenny has selected an inspiring group of creative women to showcase in her book, Signature Styles. These ladies have found their own personal "signature style" and are each featured separately with information about their evolution as an innovative creative force. Signature Styles gives a fascinating look into their point of view, inspirations, routines, how they manage work and family, and much more. The book has a gorgeous graphic layout, filled with bright colors and detailed and interesting photos on every single page. There are all kinds of fun factoids spotlighted throughout, like seamstress Meg Allan Cole's photo of her Oma's vintage dresses or the Simmons' personal prized wearables. In addition to profiling each of the twenty artistic women (including giving their website and blog addresses), they have each also included a step-by-step tutorial of a craft of their choosing (complete patterns included). It is really a delight to read about them and their talents and then actually see a specific design created by them especially for the readers. A few of the beautiful creations are a darling "crafty" applique t-shirt, a pretty patchwork tote, and a cashmere sweater recycled into a lettuce-edge shrug. Signature Styles is filled with eye candy for crafters and artists, as well as exciting information about the women that made it happen!

    Fun Projects That Everyone Will Enjoy!

    Jenny Doh and Lark books have another hit on their hands. "Signature Styles" will appeal to crafters and stitchers alike. Each spotlighted artist has a distinct style and all are bound to bring a smile to your face. I found a person who revels in one of my favorite colors (aside from gold-green I mean) orange! The projects in this book are sure to please; there's whimsical felt owls from Elsie Flannigan, a lettuce edged re-purposed sweater from Betz White (who seems to like orange), fresh, colorful country feel goodies from Serena Thompson, vintage-y lacey, feminine, wonderful fripperies from Bonzie & Ger and Sandy Stone's colorful re-purposing (the carafes full of fun buttons) is just a smattering of the fun you'll find in this new book from Jenny Doh and Lark.

    As with all books that Lark publishes the directions for the projects are well written, superbly illustrated and easy to follow. Each project includes a list of what you'll need to complete the project and, where needed, templates are included in the back of the book. Each featured artist has a page of their own with a photograph of them in their art making space, a list of what the essence of their style is, notes about what things they "can't live without" and hints about where they find the fun things that they include in their art.

    Jenny Doh is a powerhouse of creativity. In my opinion she created the publishing phenomenon that is Stampington and, since leaving their she has spread her wings and continued on to achieve even more success with her fabulous website, Crescendoh. You can't help but admire her passion for art of all kinds. She's encouraging and whimsical and just an all around amazing woman. Grab yourself a copy of this book (I've never been able to understand how Lark puts out such quality for such reasonable prices!), sit back and prepare to enjoy!
