Review quote

I d never held an embroidery hoop in my life, but an hour after checking out Little Stitches by Aneela Hoey, I found myself planted on the couch, obsessed with my new hobby. Little Stitches illustrated instructions on stitch basics are perfect for beginners, but Hoey s fresh patterns should appeal to stitchers of all expertise. Within a few days I d completed my adorable empire state building needle case (page 38). With its practical projects and delightful patterns, Little Stitchesmakes an inexpensive hobby even more accessible. And really, I just can t get over the adorable patterns! Check it out!, January 20, 2013 The word embroidery may conjure up a troop of listless young women waiting and hoping for their Mr Darcy to turn up, or your nana's posy-edged table-cloth, but Aneela Hoey brings embroidery right up to date in Little Stitches. Gone are the days when embroidery was all about alphabets and floral motifs. Your designs can be as modern as you like - from sewing machines and snow globes, to jugs of lemonade and treehouses, and Hoey's twelve whimsical, practical project tutorials show you how to put them to best use. In particular, embroidery is suited to making keepsakes and gifts, just as days gone by, but Hoey's pincushion features a taxi, and her needle case has the Empire State Building on the front. Included in this colourful and detailed guide to stitching, 21st Century-style, are more than 100 appealing illustrations printed on to transfer paper so that you can use and re-use them time and again. Embroidery, unlike some other crafts, can be taken along anywhere you go, and once you've mastered the basic stitches with Hoey's help, you'll want to embroider everything that doesn't move! more
