It's time to celebrate PieceWork's 10th anniversary, and to do that we're going to celebrate anniversaries. Start by knitting the party socks Nancy Bush designed especially for this issue. Read stories of needlework made in honor of special occasions, such as a christening gown made from a wedding dress and a cross-stitched birthday cloth. You'll also see a birthday fan quilt, bobbin-lace fan, Celtic knot, an anniversary wedding-ring quilt, a fiftieth-anniversary sweater, a Jewish banner called a wimpel, and a hardanger tablecloth for a wedding.
Admire the rich colors and traditions of Uzbekistan wedding suzanis. Read in awe about a fully crocheted wedding dress. Enjoy a peek of Lady Curzon's peacock ball gown from 1903. Dive into an intimate history of handkerchiefs. Meet the minds behind Arts and Crafts Embroidery Designs. Marvel at red-and-white Germanic samplers, than stitch your own version. Embroider a ring bearer's pillow. Tat an edging for a handkerchief. Embroider a whitework sachet. Embroider an Arts and Crafts purse.
