weekenD Sewing More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching By Heather Ross; photographs by John Gruen More than just a pair of days, a weekend is also a state of mind— a feeling of freedom to immerse ourselves fully in a favorite activity. In Weekend Sewing, designer and artist Heather Ross presents more than 40 projects for adult and children’s clothing, accessories, and home items that can be made in a weekend or less, plus creative ideas for making the most of one’s weekend sewing time and space. Some of the projects, like Ruby’s Baby Bloomers, take a few hours; others, like the Trapeze Sundress, require a day or two, but all of them capture that special weekend feeling. The project instructions and a complete reference section are beautifully illustrated by the author and patterns are included on pullout sheets. 75 color photographs, over 100 color illustrations, pullout pattern sheets, 160 pages, 8 ½ x 9 ½", hardcover with jacket.

weekenD Sewing More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching By Heather Ross; photographs by John Gruen More than just a pair of days, a weekend is also a state of mind— a feeling of freedom to immerse ourselves fully in a favorite activity. In Weekend Sewing, designer and artist Heather Ross presents more than 40 projects for adult and children’s clothing, accessories, and home items that can be made in a weekend or less, plus creative ideas for making the most of one’s weekend sewing time and space. Some of the projects, like Ruby’s Baby Bloomers, take a few hours; others, like the Trapeze Sundress, require a day or two, but all of them capture that special weekend feeling. The project instructions and a complete reference section are beautifully illustrated by the author and patterns are included on pullout sheets. 75 color photographs, over 100 color illustrations, pullout pattern sheets, 160 pages, 8 ½ x 9 ½", hardcover with jacket.

Modern Quilts with Traditional Roots By Sarah Fielke and Kathy Doughty; foreword by Kaffe Fassett; photographs by John Doughty

By its nature, do-it-yourself sewing is environmentally friendly. In Sewing Green, acclaimed eco-crafter Betz White takes stitching to an even higher level of sustainability, presenting 25 projects made from repurposed and organic fabrics, everything from an apron and skirt constructed from a men’s dress shirt and an old pillowcase, respectively, to new baby toys fashioned from secondhand cashmere sweaters. Also included are profiles of leaders in the sustainable sewing scene and essential tips and resources for stitching beautifully while treading lightly.
