The sewists are a new breed of designer-makers. From jewellery to bookbinding, felt craft to embroidery, screen-print to dressmaking, they encompass all areas of art and craft, and often combine techniques in new ways.
Author and fellow sewist Josephine Perry has interviewed 19 designers about their working life and inspiration, and persuaded each one to part with a project for readers to make. Projects include a cameo brooch using freehand machine embroidery, a fun fur and felt creature, a circus troupe decoration, block-printed napkins, subversive cross stitch and many more. Each project is clearly explained and includes step-by-step illustrations and specially commissioned photographs of the finished piece.
Also included is a CD containing templates, stitch charts and a blouse pattern - everything you need to complete the projects in the book. Anyone who enjoys sewing and crafts, and can use a sewing machine, will relish The Sewists.
