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.

Forty different hand-embroidery stitches, plus a host of creative ideas for using them, generate a range of amazing textures that will delight anyone who enjoys needlework. In what will clearly become a classic of the craft, Jan Beaney analyzes in detail the eye-catching effects that an embroiderer can achieve through the use of different background fabrics, unusual threads, and various needles. She asks questions such as “Can the stitch be worked in circles?” and “Can it be worked upside down?” and illustrates some of the possible answers. All the orthodox methods of working a canvas are discarded; unique, original techniques reign, and the colorful photos show the wonderful results.
