Carve out time for you with The Modern Embroidery Studio. If you love all things handmade and you’re looking to quench your creative thirst, this is the book for you. Now more than ever, we need to slow down, unplug, and make something with out hands. Embroidery requires patience and attention to detail, but this tactile experience gives back in a much larger way: it centers our minds, helps us feel recharged in our fast paced lives, and provides us with fabulous pieces of art to wear, share, or hang. Although hand embroidery has been around for millennia, The Modern Embroidery Studio will help you dive into the craft in a fresh, modern way. In the early chapters, all the basics are covered, from picking the best tools and supplies to mastering a handy library of stitches. Next, you’ll find the step-by-step projects, each bursting with color and arranged by theme. Browse eye-catching patterns to find your favorite and follow the simple directions, accompanied by author Lauren’s instructional tips and tricks for embroidery success. Finally, learn how to apply and customize the designs to make them truly your own. If you’re a novice stitcher, you’ll be able to learn and progress as you go; if you already have some embroidery experience, The Modern Embroidery Studio has plenty to keep you engaged. Regardless of your skill level, let embroidery bring and extra dose of happiness to your day.
