PieceWork, September/October 2009 Digital Edition
Now available for download!
Enter the wonderful world of miniatures in the September/October 2009 issue of PieceWork! Among the ten projects are a flamestitch cushion for a miniature chair, an exquisite miniature lace tablecloth to knit, a doll-size tatted edging, and a miniature Oriental carpet to needlepoint. Diminutive (2 inches [5.1 cm] in diameter) Quaker pinballs to knit carry on a tradition that began in England at a Quaker boarding school in 1790. See portions of Eloise Kruger's outstanding collection of nearly 20,000 miniatures, including handstitched items. And the grand-prize winner of PieceWork's recent brooch contest offers step-by-step instructions for you to re-create this lovely, and diminutive, creation.
