Piecework Winter Magazine 2019
A message from Long Thread Media:
Each and every issue of PieceWork is brought forth by many hands. However, this special issue has been carried forward by more hands than most. As PieceWork and sister magazines Spin Off and Handwoven settle into their new home at Long Thread Media, they are growing and changing. The future is bright, and we have so much in store for you!
Each of us at PieceWork has a deep passion for textiles past, present, and future. We are indebted to the makers who came before us as well as the people who have lifted the stories behind textile traditions and makers of the past. For nearly three decades, this unique publication has sought to spread the joy of historical needlework and assure its journey into the future. We hope you will join us as we continue this work!
This current issue includes a project for making a Velvet Sewing Roll (sometimes called a “housewife” and pictured on the cover), an excerpt from Vivian Hoxbro’s book “Traditional Danish Sweaters: 200 Stars and other Classic Motifs from Historic Sweaters”, and an “Icelandic Endless Knot Design to Stitch”.
