The Geometry of Hand-Sewing (Excerpt)
Brand new and groundbreaking. An instant classic.
Natalie Chanin and her colleagues at The School of Making have been practicing and teaching hand-sewing and embroidery stitches for many years. Along the way, they had an epiphany: all stitches, whether simple or complex, are based on a grid.
When you break a stitch down into a grid, everything is simple. Anyone can learn.
With thanks to Abrams, we are delighted to present an MDK-exclusive excerpt from The Geometry of Hand-Sewing: instructions for Cretan stitch, couching stitch, and parallel satin stitch.
Download the PDF here, and learn three embroidery stitches to use any way you like (including on your knitting).
You’ll see what’s so special about this book.
Please note: this excerpt is provided in digital PDF format only.
