The Geometry of Hand-Sewing

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing

"A romance in stitches and embroidery."

In The Geometry of Hand-Sewing, Natalie Chanin (a designer who loves geometry) and Alabama Chanin and the School of Making present their method for learning to stitch by hand. All stitches are based on geometric grid systems, so by using grids as guides they make learning stitches, even seemingly elaborate ones, easy.

Featuring color photography and illustrated instructions for more than 100 stitches, The Geometry of Hand-Sewing also includes two plastic stitching cards—die cut with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based. Cleverly reusable, these grids can be stitched through for practice and used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric. Plus, this book is spiral bound and with a soft cover, so lays flat to stay on your page.

With stitches ranging from basic to intricate, Natalie hopes to “instill you with confidence, deepen your love for the arts of hand-sewing and embroidery, and inspire you to share your love of making with others.”

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing by Natalie Chanin; spiral-bound softcover, 144 pgs.
