The eighth Historical Knitting issue examines knitting's rich legacy and its extraordinary journey through time and place: a sixteenth-century Basque whaler's cap, Spencer jackets from the Regency era and a Jane Austen-inspired Spencer jacket, traditional Sanquhar gloves, and more.
The Red Issue! Across centuries and cultures, the color red has played significant roles in people's lives. Delve into how needleworkers have interpreted this beautiful color, the color red's universal appeal, red dyes found in nature, and the embroidery traditions of Southern Russia.
The seventh annual Lace issue focuses on the history, magic, and ethereal qualities of lace. Learn about the needlework of Venetian nuns, the art of needle tatting, and Queen Victoria's passion for all things lace. Lace projects include a crocheted christening bonnet, knitted socks, and a delicate tatted scarf.
Back by popular demand-our fourth issue on handwork in literature includes Isabella Bird and her travels, rug hooking in Lucy Maud Montgomery's Pat of Silver Bush, and Edith Wharton's knitting imagery as character development in her short story "Roman Fever." Plus, our Words in Needlework Contest winners are revealed.
Whether you use a drop spindle, a wheel, or an e-spinner, tools add twist to our fiber. Breeds may come and go, but our tools are an investment - built to last. Leslie Ordal interviews wheel master Alvin Ramer and learns how he keeps antique spinning tools humming. Tom Golding teaches you to fix the annoying drop spindle wobble. Constance Hall demonstrates the versatility of blending boards.
PieceWork mentions the unmentionable in the Underwear issue. This nonscandalous look at textile history examines Civil War drawers, medieval bras, and Victorian undergarments. Projects include lace garters, a camisole, and a doll's petticoat.
