Embroidery - Threads and Stories

$50.00

Embroidery: Threads and Stories from Alabama Chanin and The School of Making recounts Natalie's journey and the origins of Alabama Chanin. A deeply personal and reflective work, Natalie’s sixth book explores her design ethos and creative process through stories that shaped her life, career, and organization as a whole. It also serves as an empowering guide for all who love design and handcraft.

Chapters explore design-related themes—craft, technique, relationship, repeat, and color—through images, instruction, and stories from Chanin about her life, Alabama Chanin, and the evolving view of craft and hand-sewing in the modern world. The book also explores how sewing and embroidery relate to wider concerns of sustainability, community, and women’s empowerment.

As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another. Embroidery challenges us to go deeper by examining the history of a beloved company and cherished pastime.
