[READ] KNOT THREAD STITCH

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM     BOOK PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANDREW PAYNTER

I am thrilled to share with you my dear friend Lisa Solomon's new book KNOT THREAD STITCH: Exploring Creativity through Embroidery and Mixed Media. Lisa is not only an accomplished artist, crafter and art professor but she is one of the most genuine people I know. We met many years ago via our blogs and I've had the pleasure of spending time with her offline (I only wish we knew each other back when I lived in the bay area). Lisa's new book is a wonderful collection of projects created by Lisa and many of her artist & crafter friends, myself included. The project I came up with for the book are some simple coasters which incorporate basic sashiko stitching. There are so many fun projects in the book that I cannot wait to try out and I think if you know how to thread a needle you will love this book, too! If you would like a chance to win a copy of KNOT THREAD STITCH please leave your name in the comments below and I'll pick one lucky winner on Friday, July 20.

UPDATE: Allison (Commenter #4) is the winner!

I so rarely sew anything by hand anymore, and when I do, it's usually mending or hemming. This looks a lot more fun! :)
