Craft of all sorts is having a strong revival and there is no more expert writer and designer than the talented Rosemary McLeod. A longtime avid collector, maker, exhibition curator, craft historian and writer, her glorious new book is a treasure trove for the serious embroiderer, felter, sewer and knitter. McLeod takes vintage patterns and renders them with a modern twist. The 40 projects range from bags to gloves, cushions to tea cosies covers, wrapped up with memoir, social history, fascinating facts , tips and hints. The projects are all magnificently photographed by leading photographer Jane Ussher and the evocative 'still lives' of pieces and objects from McLeod's exquisite and enviable collection make this book a jewel in itself.
