Knitting and Stitching Shows 2012/2013
Hand Stitch Perspectives, installed at both the Harrogate and London Knitting and Stitching Shows, celebrates the launch of Alice Kettles and Jane McKeating’s book, Hand Stitch Perspectives.
The companion volume to Machine Stitch, this book delves into the worlds of current stitch practice. Each chapter is written by an established maker, embroiderer, artist or academic and discusses hand stitch from a different perspective. Wonderful illustrations of artistic hand stitch, both contemporary and historical, demonstrate this diverse and intimate craft in detail.
