    Book details


As crafters, we learn different stitches over time without thinking a lot about how they're broken down. But when Natalie Chanin and her team began to look at their popular stitches more closely, they realised that they were all based on a geometric grid system a system that can easily be dissected and charted. The Geometry of Hand-Sewing is a must-have instruction manual to the embroidery and hand-sewing techniques and styles used at Alabama Chanin and the School of Making. Within, readers will find invaluable instruction on technique, as well as two stitching cards containing some of Alabama Chanin's most popular stitch patterns. These patterns are presented in a geometric grid system to make learning the stitches easy and straightforward. From laying out tools and materials to elaborating on stitches and how to create patterns with them, The Geometry of Hand-Sewing will be your go-to guide for becoming a more informed consumer, an enabled teacher, and a better maker in the art of embroidery and hand-stitching.

Natalie Chanin is the founder and chief designer of Alabama Chanin and author of Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns, Alabama Stitch Book, Alabama Studio Style, and Alabama Studio Sewing + Design. Chanin lives in Florence, Alabama.
