PieceWork, March/April 2016 Digital Edition
Often, PieceWork includes articles and projects on everyday textiles. That is true for this March/April 2016 issue as well. In her article on a wool coverlet embroidered with wool thread, Kathy Augustine writes: "Embroidery, although not a survival skill, helped women carve a little bit of civilization out of a harsh environment."
In this issue, you'll also discover the beautiful needlework that was produced by Gustave Stickley's Craftsman Company, embroidered huck tea towels, and many authors of nineteenth-century needlework books, who provided readers with patterns and inspiration for making everyday textiles that were not only serviceable but also beautiful. Plus, there are 9 projects to knit, crochet, and embroider for your family and home. And there’s much more awaiting you in this issue!
April 1, 2016 is the deadline for PieceWork's 2016 Miniatures Contest. Details on how to enter are included in this issue. Five category winners will receive needlework products from our generous sponsors!
