With an emphasis on Jane Brocket's 'gentle' approach to craft, this book celebrates the simple act and very enjoyable pleasures of stitching.

In a collection of more than 40 projects, Jane will show you how to make simple, stylish, and eye-catching pieces for your home. Whatever you choose to make, from quilts and samplers to needlepoint pin cushions and stitched greetings cards, Jane's unique take on stitching will ensure that the creative process is as enjoyable as seeing the finished object.

The author's text and photographs outline her inspiration for each project, and includes her top tips on the best places to find fabrics, ribbon, buttons and everything else you need to create beautiful, gentle stitching. With techniques as varied as Japanese Sashiko, kantha quilting, traditional cross stitch and modern day 'crinoline ladies', there is something here for every keen stitcher.
