The Geometry of Hand Sewing

As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another. But when Natalie Chanin and her Alabama Chanin and The School of Making teams began to look at needlework closely, they realized all stitches are based on geometric grid systems—and by using grids as guides, they could make learning stitches, even seemingly elaborate ones, as easy as child’s play. In The Geometry of Hand-Sewing Chanin presents their breakthrough method, featuring illustrated instructions (for both right- and left-handed stitchers) for more than 100 stitches—from the most basic straight and chain to the more fanciful feather and herringbone; photos of both right and wrong sides; and guidelines for modifying stitches to increase one’s repertoire further. To simplify learning, the book also offers downloads for two stitching cards with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based. These printable cards can be used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric.

75 X Lace

This book offers a balanced selection of 75 lace pieces from the rich collection of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. The collection owes many of its finest acquisitions to 'The First Dutch Society for Lace-Lovers, Het Kantsalet', which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2000. 75 x Lace offers a comprehensive history of lace collecting in the Rijksmuseum over the past 150 years, plus a catalogue of 75 of its most beautiful and interesting pieces. These range from rare 17th-century linen collars with bobbin lace borders up to and beyond the christening set of costly Brussels needle lace used for the christening of Queen Wilhelmina and her successors. This set forms only one part of the impressive royal lace collection, which has been on loan in the Rijksmuseum since 1966. All 75 objects, arranged in chronological order to provide a survey of over three centuries of lace making, are expertly described and commented on by Patricia Wardle, who has been involved with the Rijksmuseum's lace collection for the past 20 years. She is a well-known author in this field, who has published extensively on different aspects of lace and lace making.

Among the many outstanding textile collections in the V&A, hand-made lace is one of the most exquisite. The collection is comprehensive in its coverage of the technique over more than three hundred years, whether the delicate geometric perfection favoured by Elizabethan courtiers, or the bold floral exuberance of the Victorian age. Clare Browne has selected 100 examples across this range of designs and fashions in lace, to demonstrate the variety, skill and beauty lace makers have achieved in their work. Details have all been specially photographed, and the result is a feast for the eye as well as a survey of exquisite craftsmanship. This book will be additionally valuable as a record of important parts of a collection which by its nature is too fragile to be kept on permanent display, and offers a wide-ranging survey of the art and craft of lace making down the ages.

Embroidered Stories

For Italian immigrants and their descendants, needlework represents a marker of identity, a cultural touchstone as powerful as pasta and Neapolitan music. Out of the artifacts of their memory and imagination, Italian immigrants and their descendants used embroidering, sewing, knitting, and crocheting to help define who they were and who they have become. This book is an interdisciplinary collection of creative work by authors of Italian origin and academic essays. The creative works from thirty-seven contributors include memoir, poetry, and visual arts while the collection as a whole explores a multitude of experiences about and approaches to needlework and immigration from a transnational perspective, spanning the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. At the center of the book, over thirty illustrations represent Italian immigrant women’s needlework. The text reveals the many processes by which a simple object, or even the memory of that object, becomes something else through literary, visual, performance, ethnographic, or critical reimagining. While primarily concerned with interpretations of needlework rather than the needlework itself, the editors and contributors to Embroidered Stories remain mindful of its history and its associated cultural values, which Italian immigrants brought with them to the United States, Canada, Australia, and Argentina and passed on to their descendants.
