Alabama Stitch Book: Projects and Stories Celebrating Hand-Sewing, Quilting and Embroidery for Contemporary Sustainable Style
Primitive Elegance is what I think as I go through the book Alabama Stitch Book by Natalie Chanin, with Stacie Stukin, photograph by Robert Rausch. Here are the 4 things I like about this book, 1) Great story about how Natalie started this style, her business and how she tapped a community for talent. 2) Using traditional sewing methods in a very contemporary way. 3) Easy method! 4) Sustainable crafting.
Her work is beautiful and has given me ideas for many new projects. Her use of Cotton Jersey will release the hand stitcher in all of us.
